Vice in verse – Murray tackles his first verse play!


Murray Lachlan Young was a major part of the 2009 Phrased & Confused tour (his version of Ewan McColls A Rambling I will Go – re titled A Dogging I will Go performed with the help of Woodpigeon was a particular tour highlight).

You can hear him regularly on 6 Music (where he is poet in residence on the Sean Keaveney show) as well as regular appearances on radio 2 and radio 4.


Murray is also working with P&C producer Matthew Linley on a new verse play called BURLESQUE. The play has recently been through a two day development process at Dartington and you can watch Murray and his director Paul Jepson talk about the play and the process in this short video:-
