  • East Riding Theatre is hugely proud to present Dylan Thomas’ emotive and hilarious play Under Milk Wood.

    Prepare yourselves to be thoroughly energised and entertained this Spring by the lively team that brought to you A Dickens of a Christmas.

    You’ll be immersed in the intimacies of village life in the fictional Welsh village of Llareggub’ (best read backwards!) across the period of a single spring day.

    Over 30 characters will be played by our bold band of actors:

    Meet up with Mrs. Ogmore-Pritchard as she relentlessly nags not one but two dead husbands!

    Judge for yourselves the complex character of Mr. Waldo, “rabbit catcher, barber, herbalist, cat doctor, quack”, and discover the mysterious Rosie Probert (played by Elizabeth Taylor in the 1971 film).

    Considered as Thomas’ most enduring work, Under Milk Wood recognises the goodness that people are capable of and the warmth of friendship, family and community that can still bind us together.

    Learn of the dreams and experiences of Llareggub’s inhabitants:

    The retired sea captain yearning for lost love…

    The landlady living in terror of her guests…

    The father who can no longer access his memories…

    We can’t wait for you, our audiences, to join us for what promises to be a wonderful production at ERT.

    *East Riding Theatre’s Preview Night is on Thursday 4th May at 7.30pm
