In the masterpiece completed just before his untimely death at age 39, poet Dylan Thomas gave the fullest expression to his sense of the magnificent flavor and variety of life. A moving and hilarious account of a spring day in a small Welsh coast town, Under Milk Wood begins with dreams and ghosts before dawn, moves through the brilliant, noisy day of the townspeople and closes as the “rain of dusk brings on the bawdy night.” As Randall Jarrell wrote: “It would be hard for any work of art to communicate more directly and funnily and lovingly what it is like to be alive.” Dylan Thomas called it “a play for voices,” and enthusiastic audiences agreed with critics, who called it “probably the richest . . . theatre experience of the season” (Saturday Review) and “a dazzling combination of poetic fireworks and music-hall humor” (NY Times). When it was finally broadcast on the BBC Third Programme, The New Statesman wrote: “It is lyrical, impassioned and funny, an Our Town given universality.”
The play is performed through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
