  • The Bloomsbury Festival presents a screening of Dan Y Wenallt, the Welsh language adaptation of Under Milk Wood (with English subtitles).

    Starring Rhys Ifans and an ensemble Welsh cast featuring Charlotte Church, Under Milk Wood is Kevin Allen’s (Twin Town) adaptation of Dylan Thomas’s brilliant and haunting radio play. Visceral, funny and filthily fluid. Under Milk Wood follows Captain Cat as he visits the dreams and innermost thoughts of the inhabitants of a fictional small Welsh fishing village, Llareggub (“bugger all” backwards)

    Bafta’s official submission for foreign language Oscar.

    “Funny….Sweaty….Hyperactive… a highly coloured fever-dream” **** The Guardian.
