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+
Warnings: strong language
