PRESENTED BY LUKE WRIGHT
We all want something to believe in. It’s 1987 and Frankie Vah gorges on love, radical politics, and skuzzy indie stardom. But can he keep it all down?
DATE: Thursday 8th & Friday 9th March
Following the multi-award-winning What I Learned From Johnny Bevan, Luke Wright’s second verse play deals with love, loss, and belief, against a backdrop of skuzzy indie venues and 80s politics. Expect frenetic guitars, visceral verse, and a Morrissey-sized measure of heartache.
Written and performed in deft verse by Fringe First & Stage Award for Acting Excellence winner, Luke Wright.
“With Frankie Vah, he’s managed to craft a gorgeously- worded powerhouse of a play, in one of the only verse dramas that could claim to get a crowd cheering and stamping their feet throughout. Again.”
★★★★★ BROADWAY BABY
“This is a mature, lyrical and politically relevant piece of poetic writing … beautifully performed… I watched and listened in awe and pleasure, just drinking, drinking, drinking in the beauty of this show.”
“This isn’t just socialist agit-prop, though; it reaches far further than that. In his visceral, virile verse, Wright skewers the essential cadences of all political drama”
