An award-winning poet will bring his live show to Weston this month.

Following the success of his first stage show, What I Learned From Johnny Bevan, Luke Wright returns for another 25-date tour of the UK – inlcuding a night at Theatre Tropicana in Marine Parade.

His poetry has been praised for its accessibility for audiences across the world, which has allowed him to perform in such far-flung destinations as Australia and China.

The Toll explores the range of emotions felt by people up and down the country as they come to terms with Brexit.

Luke said: “I wrote these poems over the past three years.

“There’s a range of subject matter including lots of stuff about family, about England, and about heartache.

“It’s about the toll that life takes on you, but also about duty and trying to do the right thing.

“As ever in my work, politics and social issues lurk in the background ready to pounce.”

Wright has also appeared in verse documentaries on Channel 4, while his poems are regularly read on BBC radio.

He also released the highly-rated collection Mondeo Man in 2013, and curates for a number of festivals.

The Toll By Luke Wright will be performed at Theatre Tropicana at 8pm on September 22, and the show is recommended for people aged 14 and over.

Tickets, priced £10, are available from www.tropicancaweston.co.uk or Tobacco Factory Theatres on 01179 020344.

The Mercury has teamed up with Theatre Orchard to offer two pairs of tickets to see The Toll By Luke Wright at Theatre Tropicana on September 22.
