Event Description


The Remains of Logan Dankworth

I believed that Fukayama line: the end of history. But History didnt end, did it?

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.

The third of Luke Wright’s trilogy of political verse plays looks at trust, fatherhood and family in the age of Brexit. The show won The Saboteur Award for Best Show in 2020 and was a big hit with audiences and reviewers at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe.

Press

“Raw, rollicking first-person poetry…a hurtling, headlong hour of storytelling stuffed full of savage satire and astute observations, with the energy of Wright’s delivery surging.” ★★★★ The Stage

“A Superb hour of pointed and timely storytelling… extraordinary and eloquent.” ★★★★ The Scotsman

“A very good writer and performer” ★★★★ British Theatre Guide
