  • Celebrating a day in the life of ‘Llareggub’ – a small town somewhere in Wales – and its 69 ebullient inhabitants. Dylan Thomas’ timeless masterpiece is hilariously recreated in an amazing feat of memory and virtuosity. Complemented by stunning original music, this bawdy, beautiful, sad and sensual piece 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. Premiered in 1994 and performed over 2000 times all over the world, it continues to enchant and enthral audiences.
