It is 1987. Simon Mortimer, the vicar’s son from Essex, has lost his religion. Replaced by radical politics, ranting poetry, and his beloved girlfriend Eve, Simon performs his poetry as Frankie Vah. They live in love and penury, but when Frankie goes on tour with indie darlings The Midnight Shift, his new world is put to the test.

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 skuzzy indie venues and 80s politics. Expect jangling guitars, visceral verse, and a Morrissey-sized measure of heartache.

Recommended for ages 14+
