What I Learned From Johnny Bevan is a politically charged modern epic by celebrated poet Luke Wright. Written in electrifying verse, this is a story of friendship, class ceilings and the battle for the soul of the Left. At university the mercurial Johnny Bevan saves Nick, smashing his comfortable middle class bubble and firing him up about politics, music and books. Twenty years later, as their youthful dreams disintegrate alongside the social justice they hoped for, can Nick, now a jaded music journalist, save Johnny from himself? Winner of a prestigious Fringe First Award, What I Learned from Johnny strikes at the heart of a divided Britain with wit, compassion and laser precision.

Review:

'A pulsating, neatly handled piece of poetic storytelling' - THE GUARDIAN

'A play that shocks you upright; that makes your heart beat faster, that punches you right in the chest' - BROADWAY BABY

'An On the Road for the Britpop generation. Like the classic Kerouac novel, it plays out as a bittersweet ode to the necessity and transience of hero worship' - FEST MAGAZINE

'Evocative, poetic monologue about political awakening and platonic male relationships' - TIME OUT

'Haunting' --THE LIST
