Fifty years after it stunned radio audiences with its imagery, verse and cast of weird and wonderful characters, The Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum presents Under Milk Wood by the great Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. Theatricum artistic director Ellen Geer directs Thomas' intensely beautiful, poignant, and sublimely funny linguistic tour-de-force.
Reflecting the places Dylan Thomas knew and grew up in, Under Milk Wood is a voyeuristic slice of life in a typical Welsh town set over a period of 24 hours one spring day. It recounts the dreams, gossip and waking hours of the sleepy seaside village of Llareggub -- a town that looks innocent enough until you look at its name backwards!
