Freedom Festival 2020

Logan Dankworth


Written and performed by Luke Wright

Trust and privilege in the age of Brexit. Who are the winners and losers? For Freedom Festival at Home 2020, Freedom Festival teamed up with Nova Studios to commission the film version of the third of Luke Wright’s trilogy of political verse plays. .

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.

“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.”
