Lisa to support award winning Luke Wright

Lisa has confirmed that her first public outing with Sitting Ducks will be in support of the performance poet Luke Wright on his Shrewsbury leg of the award-winning tour of ‘What I Learned from Johnny Bevan’.


Presented by The Chairhouse at the Wightman Theatre Shrewsbury on Saturday May 14th 2016, this is a first  for the two working class writers who both tackle the death of New Labour through stories of friendship, family, the housing crisis and one very bad idea for a festival. Luke’s hour long performance has been wowing the theatre world since it made it’s UK premiere at Wenlock Poetry Festival in 2015 and then went on to win the Edinburgh Fringe First Award for new writing and The Stage Award for acting excellence. He is also on the road supporting the indomitable Dr John Cooper Clarke in May.

Lisa, an award-winning short story writer, is already receiving critical praise for her debut novel. With support from writer and BBC Broadcaster Stuart Maconie and literary sensation Niall Griffiths, this will be Lisa’s first public reading of Sitting Ducks.

Tickets are priced at £14 and are  now on sale from or from the following Shrewsbury outlets:

Left for Dead Records, Wyle Cop
