Called a “play for voices,” Under Milk Wood follows the dreams and innermost thoughts of the inhabitants of an imaginary seaside Welsh village called Llareggub. The villagers are a colorful bunch of eccentrics who, in a work of great poetic beauty, decide to cordon off Llareggub from the “sane world.” Six actors will perform over sixty roles in this play, Dylan Thomas’s final work.
