I believed that Fukayama line: the end of history. But History didn’t end, did it?
Logan Dankworth, columnist and Twitter warrior, grew up romanticising the political turmoil of the 1980s. Now, as the EU Referendum looms he is 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.
The third of Luke Wright’s trilogy of political verse plays looks at trust, fatherhood and family in the age of Brexit. The show was a big hit with audiences and reviewers at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe and we are delighted to bring it to Belfast.
The event will also feature the celebrated poet and novelist Clare Pollard. Her recent novel Delphi is an account of the COVID lockdown that asks if ancient myths can illuminate the present.
