What I Learned From Johnny Bevan
Written and performed by Luke Wright
Directed by Joe Murphy
WINNER Fringe First Award for new writing
WINNER The Stage Award for acting excellence
A story of shattered friendship, class ceilings, and the hollow reality of the New Labour dream.
At university the whip-smart, mercurial Johnny Bevan saves Nick, smashing his comfortable, middle class bubble and firing him up about politics, music and literature. Twenty years later, as their youthful dreams disintegrate with the social justice they hoped for, can Nick save Johnny from himself?
Luke Wright delivers a multi award-winning hurricane of a performance. With humour and humanity he takes British politics head on, challenging the rise of New Labour, David Cameron and the adandonment of those left behind.
Co-commissioned by Norwich Arts Centre and Writers' Centre Norwich
