Award-winning poet Luke Wright will take his latest critically-acclaimed show to Clevedon later this month, and the Times has tickets to see it up for grabs.

Frankie Vah will be at Theatre Shop in Queens Square on September 21.

The production is all about life during a year of both personal and political upheaval in 1987.

The politically-charged show has been widely praised by the likes of The Guardian, Vogue and The Telegraph.

A Theatre Orchard spokesman said: “Following the multi-award-winning What I Learned From Johnny Bevan, Luke Wright’s second verse play deals with love, loss and belief against a backdrop of grimy indie venues and 1980s politics.

“Expect frenetic guitars, visceral verse and a Morrissey-sized measure of heartache.”

Luke Wright has previously won the Fringe First & Stage Award for Acting Excellence and has also performed globally with Patti Smith and Beck.

The show has also been put together by a talented directing team of Joe Murphy and Alex Thorpe while Olivier Award-nominated Paul Jellis is the producer.

The soundtrack has been composed by Ian Catskilkin, singer and songwriter in rock band Art Brut, who has previously toured with the likes of Oasis, The Hold Steady and We Are Scientists.

Frankie Vah will be performed at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £12, can be booked online or by calling 03336 663366.

Theatre Orchard and the Times have teamed up once again to offer one lucky reader a pair of tickets to see Frankie Vah.
