It’s toured the UK to five-star reviews, now Matt Abbott’s Two Little Ducks can be seen in Marsden for one night only, Friday 15th March.
A powerful, personal and political spoken word show from one of poetry’s rising stars, channeling the human side of politics to look at national identity, preconceptions, class and anti-establishment anger. Poetic flair and storytelling, with a unique insight into the summer that changed everything.
Matt Abbott was volunteering at the Calais Jungle refugee camp when his native Wakefield voted 66% Leave. Why did so many working-class communities like his support Brexit so strongly? How can the UK ignore a humanitarian crisis just 22 miles from Dover? And does anything ever actually change for people like Maria?
An artist with something to say, who knows how to say it, The Scotsman
Classy; he talks politics from the heart & with humour, The Morning Star
