  • Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas, Performed by Guy Masterson

    Directed by Tony Boncza (with original direction by George Dillon)
    Original Music and Soundscape by Matt Clifford

    Celebrating a day in the life of ‘Llareggub’ – a small sea town somewhere in Wales – all 69 ebullient inhabitants in Dylan Thomas’ timeless masterpiece is hilariously recreated in an amazing feat of memory and virtuosity. Complemented by a stunning original soundscape, it’s bawdy and beautiful, sad and sensual and, through the music of language, leaves indelible, unforgettable images of humanity.

    Made famous by Richard Burton’s legendary recording in 1954, Guy Masterson (Burton’s nephew) brings the entire work to vivid life on stage.
