Description

‘Love the words; love the words’ was Dylan Thomas’s advice to the first performers of Under Milk Wood in 1953. Directed by Nic Lloyd, Malvern Theatres Young Company have done just that; and bring their love of this exquisitely lyrical language to the Fringe for their second year, following 2018’s hugely popular performance of Sophocles’s Antigone. This funny and poignant portrait of a Welsh seaside town has always resonated with readers and audiences, thanks to the universality of its characters and its vivid sense of location. Come closer now and enjoy the magic of Under Milk Wood.

A first class version of this classic. There is nothing one could fault this performance & presentation. I sat in awe. Much talent here for London's West End from these actors.
Bravo.

Excellent performances communicate the humour and pathos of Thomas’ poetry beautifully, with clarity, intimacy and vibrancy. The staging kept the show dynamic and engaging - and is an excellent example of how to stage work in the round. It is accessible, engaging and worthy of its five star reviews.

**** Brilliant. Brought Dylan Thomas to life

As someone who had not read the piece before or know even what it was about, I was abit worried that I wouldn't follow the piece. Couldn't have been more wrong. Excellent performances, funny in places and insightful - a great sideways look at a Welsh town. Strongly recommended
