The third part of Luke Wright’s trilogy of political verse plays is set in 2016 as the EU referendum looms. Dankworth, a newspaper columnist, is trying to hold things together both at home and in his professional life while the ghosts of Thatcher’s Britain and the legacies of New Labour haunt him. Wright is almost unique in his pursuit of verse drama as a spikey theatrical form. His dense but savagely entertaining solo shows are very engaging and ask big questions; in this case, how can trust be maintained in private and public life?
"I believed that Fukayama line: the end of history. But History didn’t end, did it?" Logan Dankworth, columnist and Twitter warrior, grew up romanticising the political turmoil of the 1980s. Now, as the EU Referendum looms he is determined to be in the fray of the biggest political battle for years. Meanwhile, Logan's wife Megan wants to leave London to better raise their daughter. As tensions rise at home and across the nation, something is set to be lost forever. The third of Luke Wright's trilogy of political verse plays looks at trust, fatherhood and family in the age of Brexit. The show won The Saboteur Award for Best Show in 2020 and was a big hit with audiences and reviewers at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe. Age Recommendation: 14+
