Synopsis

£15 Full (£14 Concession)

By Dylan Thomas | Performed by Guy Masterson | Directed by Tony Boncza (with original direction by George Dillon) | Original music and Soundscape by Matt Clifford 

Celebrating a day in the life of 'Llareggub' - a small seatown somewhere in Wales - all 69 ebullient inhabitants in Dylan Thomas' timeless masterpiece are hilariously recreated in an amazing feat of memory and virtuosity.

Made famous by Richard Burton's legendary recording in 1954, Guy Masterson (Burton's nephew) brings the entire work to vivid life on stage. This astonishing solo performance premiered in 1994 and has played over 2000 times all over the world from Swansea to the West End, Trinidad to New Zealand, Hong Kong to Calcutta.
 

If you've never seen Under Milk Wood before, this is perhaps the ultimate rendition. Don't miss it! (The Guardian)

[5 Stars ] "It's a feat of multiple characterisation impeccable timing, vocal dexterity and precise physical control, performed with tremendous sensitivity and panache!" (The Guardian)

[5 Stars ] "Absolutely wonderful, intensely therapeutic, intensely uplifting! Guy Masterson is something exceptional!" (BBC Radio Scotland)
