    Under Milk Wood is Dylan Thomas’ most famous and enduring work now translated into over 50 languages. A favourite since its first broadcast with Richard Burton in January 1954, it brilliantly conjures the intimate dreams and innermost desires of the inhabitants of Llareggub – a small fictional sea-town somewhere in Wales.
    Using nothing but a wooden chair, dark glasses, apposite lighting and a beautifully haunting soundscape by Matt Clifford Guy Masterson performs the entire work – playing all 69 characters
    men & women, girls and boys – himself! It is unbeleivably recreated and entirely enchanting.
    The show is truly remarkable. Commiting the work – word perfectly – to memory is one thing. To perform all the characters in such an engaging, delightful and totally convincing manner is another. Masterson achieves all this and more. The performance is quite simply amazing! The reviews speak for themselves.
    Bawdy and beautiful, sad and sensual, through the music of language, it creates indelible, unforgettable images of humanity.
