Bristol Old Vic Theatre School present Dylan Thomas's Under Milk Wood
Directed by Christopher Scott
"We are not wholly bad or good, who live our lives under Milk Wood."
"Dylan Thomas's beautiful, bawdy, affectionate, reckless and deeply original play was justly crowned at its first performance by a storm of cheers." So wrote The Times on Under Milk Wood's stage debut.
In the fictitious fishing village of Llareggub, this twenty four hour peek into the lives and loves of the likes of Captain Cat, Polly Garter and Willy Nilly has continued to enthral its audiences ever since. With its canvas of nonsense gossip, feuds, affairs, fights, frauds and practical jokes, the play pulses with the vitality and relish of real life characters re-living their dreams and desires. Come closer now, and enter the world of Under Milk Wood.
"It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black, the cobbledstreets silent and the hunched courters'-and-rabbits' wood limping invisible down to the sloeblack, slow, black, crowblack, fishingboat-bobbing sea."
The annual west Country tour by Bristol Old Vic Theatre School comes to The Exchange through Artsreach, Dorset's touring arts charity.
