Luke Wright’s multi award-winning tour-de-force takes the British Parliament head on in What I Learned From Johnny Bevan at the Soho Theatre, challenging the rise of contemporary political establishments with humour and humanity.
Nick lives in a comfortable, middle class bubble at University until the whip-smart Johnny Bevan smashes it, firing him up about politics, music and literature.
Twenty years down the line, and with their youthful dreams having disintegrated with the social justice they hoped for, can Nick save Johnny from himself?
A story of shattered friendship, class ceilings, and the hollow reality of the New Labour dream, Luke Wright tackles New Labour, David Cameron, and the abandonment of those left behind.
Recommended for theatre-goers aged 14+.
