Under Milk Wood

Under Milk Wood
by Dylan Thomas

 A B O U T

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...
