Sweet and saucy, Under Milk Wood takes us from sunrise to sunset through the village of Llareggub (try saying it backwards…), a fishing village in South Wales.
Originally written as a ‘Play for Voices’, Thomas’ piece winds through the village and introduces us to more than fifty characters. Some are explored only in a few sentences, whilst others form the backbone of the piece and lead us through the play.
