Under Milk Wood is a work of genius; ripe with vitality, rich in humour and populated by sublime, eccentric, enchanting characters.
Come to Llareggub, a small Welsh town by the sea. Meet blind Captain Cat, Mog Edwards and his sweetheart Miss Price, Sinbad Sailor, Dai Bread, Polly Garter, Nogood Boyo and Lord Cut Glass. Walk along Coronation Street, Cockle Row and Donkey Street, down to the little fishing harbour and back to Milk Wood. Dylan Thomas explores their lives, hopes and thoughts in the dreams of a night and the rhythm of a day.
Your guide through the town and its inhabitants – their secrets and stories – is the brilliant Welsh actor Owen Teale, star of Game of Thrones and winner of the Best Actor Tony Award for his performance in A Doll’s House on Broadway.
Both a play and a poem, written from the heart, it offers an unforgettable journey into the roots of language and the soul of Wales.
This new production, directed by Terry Hands, marks the centenary of Dylan Thomas’ birth in 1914 and the 60th anniversary of the play’s British première.

Owen Teale talks to the North Devon Journal and the Exeter Express and Echo about appearing in Under Milk Wood and his special connection with Plymouth.
Back in 1996, the national tour of A Doll’s House started in Plymouth; a tour which culminated in an extended run on Broadway and the coveted Best Actor Tony award for Owen. “It’s a meaningful place. Some of my earliest theatre performances took place there so it holds sentimental value.” North Devon Journal
“I was in Cabaret and played in the chorus as a German Waiter and had to do a very suggestive dance. It was really good fun and I have very fond memories of the city and I am really looking forward to going back there. I believe the theatre has just undergone a major refurbishment so I can’t wait to see how it looks now.” Exeter Express and Echo
