  • Dylan Thomas’ other works are arguably overshadowed by his masterpiece, Under Milk Wood. Guy Masterson redresses the balance by bringing out the fabulous magic of his other works of genius in this award winning performance, brilliantly conjuring Thomas’ romantic lyricism and passion, and illuminating his mastery of language.
    The programme includes three of Thomas’ wonderful short stories; ‘A Visit To Grandpa’s’, ‘Holiday Memory’ and, of course, ‘A Christmas Story’ (more popularly known as ‘A Child’s Christmas In Wales’), plus a selection of his greatest verse including ‘Fern Hill’, ‘Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night’ and ‘Death Shall Have No Dominion’.

    Masterson’s command of Thomas’ work is remarkable, akin to his great uncle, the late Richard Burton. If you want to experience the richness and magic of the English language at its very best, don’t miss this enchanting show.
