Luke Wright's Silver Jubilee

Part of Bury St Edmunds Comedy Festival 2024

About this event

Crack out the bunting! It's Luke Wright's Silver Jubilee.

Over 25 years, Luke Wright has built up a reputation for being one of Britain's most popular live poets. This year, thwarted in his attempts to hold a street party by the philistines on the council and unable to shift the over-ordered commemorative plates, Wright does what a poet does best, and takes a deep dive into himself.

Wright was adopted as a baby and grew up believing that his adoption "wasn't a big thing." But one night he idly stumbled across his birth mother on Facebook. This window to a world that might have been his has thrown up deep questions about privilege, familial love, and destiny. This show is an excavation of lives lived and not lived.

Age Guidance: 14+
