  • You are invited to Tobacco Factory Theatres for an extraordinary encounter with a literary giant.

We can’t wait for it to return.

    Dylan Thomas was born in Wales in 1914 and died in New York in 1953 at the age of 39. Towards the end of his life he toured America performing his works before sell out audiences across the country.

    Playing a man who wrestled with the psychological conflict between creative talent and self-destructive impulse, Bob Kingdom’s remarkable portrayal of his bardic countryman is tangibly heartfelt and authentic; audiences have sworn it was the poet himself on stage.

    Heralded by critics worldwide as a “lyrical tour-de-force” (The Guardian), this is your chance to experience Bob Kingdom’s “electrifying performance” (New York Times) as he brings Dylan Thomas’ last lecture tour to life in Anthony Hopkins’ celebrated directorial debut.
