The Remains of Logan Dankworth by Luke Wright on Saturday 8th February 2020

The Remains of Logan Dankworth, the third and final instalment of Luke Wright’s trilogy of political verse, looks at trust and privilege in the age of Brexit.

Logan Dankworth, newspaper columnist and Twitter warrior, grew up romanticising the political turmoil of the 1980s. Now, as the EU Referendum looms he is determined to be right there in the fray of the biggest political battle for years. Meanwhile, Logan’s wife Megan wants to leave London to find a place to better raise their daughter. As tensions mount at home and across the nation, something is set to be lost forever.

‘His performances rumble with rage, passion and humour,) peppered with brilliantly smart observations.Guardian

The first two plays in the trilogy dealt with Thatcherism and the legacy of New Labour. They were praised by critics and audiences alike for their mature, lyrical and politically relevant poetic writing, laced with wit, compassion and laser precision. The Remains of Logan Dankworth is a personal story occurring against the backdrop of political upheaval. It features a man approaching middle age excited by the febrile nature of British politics while trying to hold things together at home.

Luke Wright is a poet and theatre maker who has been writing and performing his work for 20 years, touring all over the world. He is acknowledged as one of Britain’s top stand-up poets and one of the principle architects of the now thriving spoken word scene.

Flamboyant, political and riotously funny, Luke’s published work includes two full collections, three pamphlets and the two verse plays. He is the winner of a Fringe First, a Stage Award for acting excellence and two Saboteur Awards. The Remains of Logan Dankworth will be published in book form by Penned in the Margins in early February.

For 11 years he co-programmed the Poetry Arena at Latitude, Europe’s largest poetry gig and now curates poetry for Edinburgh International Book Festival.

The Remains of Logan Dankworth is directed by Alex Thorpe who also directed Frankie Vah and has three Royal Shakespeare Company productions under his belt. Music for the show was written and performed by musician and writer Polly Wright.
