In the mythical Welsh Village of Llareggub, people are dreaming, singing, laughing, working, sleeping drinking and loving through their last hours on earth.
In this production of Under Milk Wood, Director Matt Gray has recreated the layered magic that Dylan Thomas envisioned.

The audience is swept undertow by the myriad voices of the characters who’ve called Milk Wood home.
