Luke Wright seeks poetry’s top job. Has own quill.
With a new Poet Laureate due in 2019 Wrighty’s chucking his hat in the ring. But he’s a dark horse at best. He turned down his last invite to Buck House and he’s really got to stop penning one-vowelled invectives about Tory politicians if he’s to get a look in.
So he’s a on a mission to reinvent his poetry, to unite rather than divide. But can one poet ever really represent an entire nation? And just who are these previously laureled rogues?
Luke delves into the murky world of poets laureate past while serving up a sparkling set of new poems.
“Fierce, wistful, romantic and witty by turns, this is a sensational hour of
poetry. Carol Ann Duffy retires as poet laureate next year, and we’ll get a new one. It probably won’t be Luke Wright. But it would be so brilliant if he were.” The Stage
