Poet Luke Wright brings final trilogy play to London in March 2023 as part of an extensive UK tour.

The Remains of Logan Dankworth visits the Length and Breadth of the country with London dates at the Pleasance Theatre 8, 9, 10 March. Like the previous plays in the series it looks at how national political drama affects people’s emotions and personal lives. 

The Remains of Logan Dankworth is the third and final instalment of Luke Wright’s trilogy of political verse plays. As we continue to discover the lingering legacy of Brexit the play, set in 2016 as the referendum campaigns build, centres on themes of privilege and trust between married couples, between voters and politicians and trust and truth in the media.

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 better place to raise their daughter. As tensions mount at home and across the nation, something is set to be lost forever. Can we ever learn to trust each other again?

Luke is about to enter the 25th year of his poetry career and in that time he has taken his verse around the world including performing in Australia and China. He has become a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe, on Radio 4 and Radio 3, on national TV and on film.
