Luke Wright: The Remains Of Logan Dankworth (Luke Wright)

By | Published on Saturday 6 August 2022

Luke Wright is brilliant, so it’s no surprise that this is a compelling, powerful play fusing intelligent writing with an engaging performance. This is a vibrant, often funny tale of a fictional comedian and commentator who rises to prominence in the Brexit debate, even as his home life begins to fall apart. As he loses himself somewhere between leave and remain, between left and right, he also loses sight of his wife, and his family. The two aspects of his life are skilfully woven together, mirroring one another perfectly. Just as countless arguments over Brexit broke out against the backdrop of countless lives, so the two halves of Dankworth echo and fold into one another with tragic inevitability.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 29 Aug.
