    Our summer 2022 production will be directed by Dick Bower, the director of our very successful productions of “One Man, Two Guvnors” in 2016 and “Macbeth” in 2018.

    Written for the radio by one of the best-loved poets of the last century, this ‘Play for Voices’ tells the story of a day in the life of the small Welsh seaside village of Llareggub. Lyrically written, it is riotously funny, riskily bawdy and deeply moving, and, although firmly rooted in place, the universality of the characters shines through. The language is rich and deeply evocative of rural Wales and its people in the 1950s and has earned the work an acclaimed place in English and Welsh literature.

    In keeping with the author’s aim and as befits the beauty of the dialogue, “Under Milk Wood” will be performed in a kind of concert style.
