  • Before Dylan Thomas drank himself to death at the tender age of 39, he and his bohemian wife, Caitlin, binged and brawled their way round the bars of Britain in the 1930s and 40s. In this one woman show, Caitlin Macnamara tells the story in her own brutally honest words about her stormy, skint, passionate, booze-fuelled, infidelity-riddled marriage to the selfish, tragic genius and of her own unfulfilled ambitions. ‘He had his poetry. He was a poet. You will have heard of him. And Caitlin Macnamara? Chances are if you’ve heard of me, it’s because I married him.’
