Upcoming Auditions: Under Milk Wood

Stumble down Llaregyb Hill towards the sea and you will discover a village fast and slow asleep; a village whose history is poetry and dreams; a village populated by gossips, poisoners, lovers and ghosts.

Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but always beautiful, Under Milk Wood invites the audience to explore the innermost thoughts and desires of over sixty unforgettable characters, including time-obsessed Lord Cut-Glass, Bessie Bighead and her cows, Jack Black with his religious trousers, and blind old Captain Cat who communes with the dead.

Dylan Thomas plays with morality and hope in this fairytale play for voices, all the time showcasing his unique musical mastery of the English language, and celebrating the magical power of words.
