UNDER MILK WOOD
IT HAS TO BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED!
Celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2023… One day in the life of ‘Llareggub’ – a fictional sea-town somewhere in Wales… All 69 of Dylan Thomas’ wonderfully ebullient inhabitants in his timeless masterpiece are assiduously recreated in an amazing feat of memory and physical virtuosity. Complemented by a stunning original soundscape my Matt Clifford, it’s bawdy and beautiful, sad and sensual and, through the music of language, leaves indelible, unforgettable images of humanity. The beauty of Thomas’s wordplay and Masterson’s virtuosity will leave you breathless!
Inspired by his famous uncle, Richard Burton, who led the first broadcast on the BBC World Service in January 1954, Here, Olivier Award winner, Masterson, brings the entire work to vivid life on stage by himself!
This production has since played over 2000 times all over the world from Swansea to the West End, Trinidad to New Zealand, Hong Kong to Calcutta over 30 years, enchanting audiences wherever it has played…
