Company of Players - No Image Available
Season: 1995-1996
2nd – 9th December 1995 at 8pm Under Milk Wood
By  Dylan Thomas
Directed by Gill Newton

‘To begin at the beginning: It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black….”

The opening of Under Milk Wood draws you into Thomas’ story of a day in the life of the inhabitants of the small Welsh seaside village of Llareggub.

This ‘play for voices” is populated by some of the best-loved characters in literature, from blind Captain Cat to Polly Garter, Reverend Eli Jenkins to No Good Boyo. Lyrically written, it’s both riotously funny and deeply moving, and although firmly rooted in place, the universality of the characters shines through.
