  • Olivier Award winner Guy Masterson performs Dylan Thomas’ enduring masterpiece Under Milk Wood: a day in the life of Llareggub, a fictional sea-town somewhere in Wales.

    In an amazing feat of memory and physical virtuosity, Masterson recreates all 69 of Dylan Thomas’ wonderfully ebullient inhabitants entirely on his own! Complemented by a stunning original soundscape by Matt Clifford, this unique solo interpretation makes the words sing. It’s bawdy and beautiful, sad and sensual and, through the music of language, leaves indelible, unforgettable images of humanity.

    ​Inspired by Masterson’s famous uncle, Richard Burton – who led the first broadcast of Under Milk Wood on the BBC World Service in January 1954 – this award-winning production has been performed well over 2000 times around the world since 1993: from Edinburgh to the West End, New York to New Zealand, Hong Kong to Calcutta, enchanting audiences wherever it has played…
