Attila The Stockbroker: UNDAUNTED

SoapBox is proud to present: 
ATTILA THE STOCKBROKER - UNDAUNTED

Trump, Brexit and a diagnosis of bladder cancer. Deal with that, Attila... 
In his latest book he does – head on, without a backward step or any of the hand- wringing which has sadly characterised much of the response to the worrying events of recent times. This is Attila the Stockbroker at his best: focused and determined both personally and politically, fired up and ready for whatever the future may bring. 

After 35 years earning a living as a poet and about 3,500 gigs in 24 countries, ‘Undaunted’ is his ninth book of poems and is his angriest, most passionate and most personal collection so far. He’ll bring it to life on stage. 

He’ll also be performing work from his previous poetry collections ‘UK Gin Dependence Party and Other Peculiarities’ and ‘My Poetic Licence’ and his 2015 autobiography ‘Arguments Yard’ plus a few of his songs. Poems to make you laugh, cry and get very, very angry...

Support comes from University of Suffolk students: Matt Annis & Allanah Jo-Ann Peck.

Attila The Stockbroker

Sharp-tongued, high energy, social surrealist rebel poet and songwriter. His themes are topical, his words hard-hitting, his politics unashamedly radical, but Attila will make you roar with laughter as well as seethe with anger. More >>
