    ‘To begin at the beginning: It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black…’
    These famous opening lines draw us into a radio masterpiece capturing 24 hours in the lives of the inhabitants of the small Welsh seaside village of Llareggub. (Read the name backwards!) It features a cast of unforgettable characters, from Polly Garter to Organ Morgan, from Reverend Eli Jenkins to No Good Boyo.

    The Workington Playgoers are delighted to present this much-loved ‘play for voices’ by one of the greatest poets and playwrights of the twentieth century. Under Milk Wood is both riotously funny and deeply moving. Although firmly rooted in place, the universality of the characters shines through, which is why it has been translated into around thirty different languages and is regularly performed all over the world.
