Publicity material for this event says:

After the Fringe First winning success of What I Learned From Johnny Bevan, Luke Wright is back to subject the English language to a series of degrading new tricks, all for your amusement.

The poems in The Toll tour the flat-roofed pubs and half-bought couches of Brexit Britain. They struggle with doubt, duty and a score of half-cut nights spent shouting impotently at Question Time.

Spend an evening with a raconteur at the top of his game, as he spits out visceral, inventive verse that sweats, bleeds and sings.

"Visceral, poignant and riotously funny" The Scotsman

“A rip-roaring raconteur, evoking a Larkin-esque sense of commuter belt ennui” Metro

“Cool poems.” Patti Smith
