Following the success of this
production at the Welsh Church Hall in July 2006 and the Kenneth More
Theatre in February 2007, Woodhouse Players
are proud to return to the Kenneth More Theatre
foyer in Ilford for a further reprise.
A 'radio studio' rehearsed reading of Dylan Thomas' "Welsh Ulysses",
without set or costume, of the classic Welsh play for voices.
The Woodhouse Players present this play as originally intended,
with ten voices taking the roles of the entire townsfolk of the
small Welsh town of Llareggub, based on Laugharne, where Dylan
Thomas wrote for many years and is now buried.
Blind Captain Cat, sweet Polly Garter, feckless Mr Waldo, strict
Mrs Ogmore-Pritchard and other classic characters mingle their
dreams, inner thoughts and daily activities in a rich blend of
poetry, prose and song that is archetypally Welsh.
Close your eyes and listen carefully as an ordinary spring day
unfolds through words alone...
