Fringe REVIEW: Luke Wright's Silver Jubilee - ★★★★

Crack out the bunting! Someone you've barely heard of has been doing something you're scarcely aware of for a reasonably long time. Award-winning poet Luke Wright tries to celebrate his 25 years of service on the literary frontline but ends up taking a deep dive into himself and the England that raised him. New poems on class, excessive consumption, love and adoption. 'Visceral, poignant and riotously funny' ***** (Scotsman). 'One of the funniest and most brilliant poets of his generation' (Independent). 'Cool poems' (Patti Smith). ***** (Stage, List, Time Out). **** (Guardian, Telegraph, Mirror, Mail).

Ailie (Age 14) - ★★★

"I rate it 3 stars because for me it wasn't as interesting as I don't really like poetry but it was still a really good show"

Stewart - ★★★★

"Wright is quite a magnetic stage presence as his intelligent, poignant and often very funny takes on his life are played out. He's very much putting his life out there, most effectively in his honest feelings about his adoption, his birth mother and his adopted mother - it's a very appealing means of presentation and food for thought.

He's also extremely funny at times and the poems about his cats were also highlights. If the cleverness sometimes takes hold over the comprehension, Luke Wright's show is still undoubtedly a class act more than worthy of a cracked commemorative plate. Take a chance on something a little more leftfield and go see this show."
