Scottish writer Darren McGarvey's one-man show at the Edinburgh Fringe, informed by his own violent and addictive past, is a powerful insight into Britain's wealth gap via rap and acid comedy.McGarvey, 33, tells the story of a working class boy who goes to a party with his girlfriend's university friends. NatCen Social Research has found that the highest backing for Britain to leave the European Union in a 2016 referendum was amongst those classed as the most economically deprived and with no educational qualification.Using his own memoirs as a hook to talk about poverty has proved successful, and this year McGarvey won Britain's prestigious Orwell prize for political writing with the bestselling "Poverty Safari".
