Company: Clwyd Theatr Cymru
By Dylan Thomas
Director Terry Hands
Designer Martyn Bainbridge
Under Milk Wood is a work of genius; ripe with vitality, rich in humour and populated by sublime, eccentric, enchanting characters.
Come to Llareggub, a small Welsh town by the sea. Meet blind Captain Cat, Mog Edwards and his sweetheart Miss Price, Sinbad Sailor, Dai Bread, Polly Garter, Nogood Boyo and Lord Cut Glass. Walk along Coronation Street, Cockle Row and Donkey Street, down to the little fishing harbour and back to Milk Wood. Dylan Thomas explores their lives, hopes and thoughts in the dreams of a night and the rhythm of a day.
Both a play and a poem, written from the heart, it offers an unforgettable journey into the roots of language and the soul of Wales.
This new production, directed by Terry Hands, marks the centenary of Dylan Thomas' birth in 1914 and the 60th anniversary of the play's British premiere.
“...something really magical that gets right to the heart and soul of this classic.”
The Guardian (quote from the 2000 production).
Stage text captioning facility available at the Thurs evening performance.
