By Dylan Thomas. Heidelberg Theatre Company. Directed by Chris Baldock, assisted by Helen Ellis. Nov 17 – Dec 3, 2011.
Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood is a dazzling piece of writing, so alive and so descriptive of the inhabitants of the Welsh village of Llareggub, you can see, hear, smell and feel the place. From this gorgeous source material, director Chris Baldock and assistant director Helen Ellis have created a truly magical show.
From its clever, deceptively simple set - allowing characters to move in and out of each other’s lives, doorways and hearts with ease – to the impressively consistent performances of its large ensemble cast, this show is a delight.
