Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

Directed by Christopher Scott
Dylan Thomass 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 Woods stage debut.
Set 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.
We are not wholly bad or good, who live our lives under Milk Wood.
