Farmyard presents…Luke Wright

Following from the multi-award winning What I Learned From Johnny Bevan, Luke Wright brings his second verse play Frankie Vah to the stage.

Frankie Vah …We all want something to believe in. It’s 1987 and Frankie Vah gorges on love, radical politics, and skuzzy indie stardom. But can he keep it all down?

Following the multi-award-winning What I Learned From Johnny Bevan, Luke Wright’s second verse play deals with love, loss, and belief, against a backdrop of skuzzy indie venues and 80s politics. Expect frenetic guitars, visceral verse, and a Morrissey-sized measure of heartache.

Written and performed in deft verse by Fringe First & Stage Award for Acting Excellence winner, Luke Wright.

“Brilliant script … sheer linguistic virtuosity and sweaty magnetism.” ★★★★ Time Out

Frankie Vah was pick of the Fringe in Vogue, The Telegraph, The Stage, Exeunt, WhatsonStage, The Guardian, Edinburgh Festivals Magazine and Fringe Reporter.

Broadway Baby gave the play five stars, calling it: “a gorgeously-worded powerhouse of a play … one of the only verse dramas that could claim to get a crowd cheering and stamping their feet throughout.”
