Frankie Vah by Luke Wright

‘A clever playwright and a charismatic performer’ The Guardian ‘Brilliant…sheer linguistic virtuosity and sweaty magnetism’ Time Out ‘Absolutely mesmerizing’ Exeunt

We all want something to believe in. It’s 1987 and Frankie Vah gorges on love, radical politics and dirty 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 scuzzy indie venues and 80s politics. Expect frenetic guitars, visceral and a Morrissey-sized measure of heartache.

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