The Remains of Logan Dankworth

by Luke Wright 

Trust and privilege in the age of Brexit. Who are the winners and losers? The third of Luke Wright’s trilogy of political verse plays. Freedom Festival have teamed up with Nova Studios to commission this film version.

Columnist and Twitter warrior Logan Dankworth grew up romanticising the political turmoil of the 1980s. Now, as the EU Referendum looms, he’s 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 and privilege in the age of Brexit.

“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 (May 2020)

"Human, vulnerable, eminently honest and very, very eloquent. There is some sensational writing in this show, and Wright paces his storytelling like a train ride, quickening to exhilaration, slowing to pathos, and always keeping us with him.”

Arifa Akbar, The Guardian (January 2020)

Co-commissioned by Norwich Arts Centre, National Centre for Writing, Colchester Arts Centre and Freedom Festival Arts Trust. Supported by Arts Council, England.
