  • Under Milk Wood

    Dylan Thomas

    “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.”

    Commissioned by the BBC, and described by Dylan Thomas as ‘a play for voices’, Under Milk Wood chronicles a single day in the fictional Welsh seaside village of Llareggub.
