    The acclaimed film Love Somehow offers a poetic telling of Caitlin’s Relationship with Dylan Thomas and is filmed in Laugharne Wales.

    This special screening of the film includes a Q&A with the films screenplay writer, the poet Phil Bowen. 

    Caitlin Thomas was a dancer, writer and the woman behind the famous/infamous and brilliant Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas.

    She partied as hard as him, advised him, loved him, kept him sober enough to write his poetry and brought up their family on no money, finally surviving his early death.

    Very little is written about Caitlin, her role in their legend or her recovery, and most portrayals are laughably inaccurate. This is Caitlin’s poetic version of her life with Dylan.

 Love Somehow stars RSC and National Theatre actress Sally George as Caitlin Thomas and Griff Rhys Jones playing the voice of Dylan Thomas.

    The film was adapted from the versed one woman show, The Same Boat, written by Phil Bowen.

    Sally was recently seen in People Places and Things at the Wyndham in the West End. Griff Rhys Jones has played Dylan Thomas and was the executive producer on Poet in New York.

    The film was adapted by BAFTA winning writer Anna Maloney and was directed by Kate Cheeseman. ​
