The Remains of Logan Dankworth

Luke Wright

"In his visceral, virile verse, Wright skewers the essential cadences of all political drama."

best spoken word show - 2020 saboteur awards

In the third of his trilogy of powerful political verse plays, Luke Wright examines the loss of trust in the age of Brexit.

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.

Reviews

Like its forerunners, it is told in raw, rollicking first-person poetry. And like its forerunners, it is great – a hurtling, headlong hour of storytelling stuffed full of savage satire and astute observations, with the energy of Wright’s delivery surging from the screen. We are so busy tearing everything down, he argues, that we never actually build anything anymore.
★★★★ Fergus Morgan, The Stage

Wright’s performance is human, vulnerable, eminently honest and very, very eloquent. There is some sensational writing in this show. [...] Its rhythm is mesmerising, too, and Wright paces his storytelling like a trainride, quickening to exhilaration, slowing to pathos, and always keeping us with him.
Arifa Akbar, The Guardian
