Westacre Theatre will end a successful spring season with Dylan Thomas’ classic play for voices, Under Milk Wood, which promises to be a feast for the imagination.

The cast will be getting to grips with the inhabitants of the fictitious town of Llaregub as they perform under the direction of Andy Naylor.

Fans of Thomas’ work will be familiar with the colourful collection of characters that reside in this town while those new to the play are in for a rare treat.

Originally created as a 
radio play, this masterpiece evokes all the sounds and sights of the small seaside town and everyone in it - from Captain Cat to 
Nogood Boyo, from the Rev Eli Jenkins to Mrs Ogmore-Pritchard, and a smattering of neighbours, wives, sailors and children all thrown in to make up this wonderful 
assortment of voices.

Full of eccentric characters straight from Thomas’ vivid imagination, this production will focus on the rich textures of the sounds and voices, with a special contribution from local musician Charlie Williams.

Under Milk Wood will be showing on April 26 and 27, and May 2 and 4.

Tickets cost £16 and are available from the box office on 01760 755800, or online at
