The world-famous Welsh poet Dylan Thomas expanded our sense of what language can do. Rhythmically forceful, yet subtly musical and full of ‘singingly memorable lines’, his poems remain anthology favorites. His Play for Voices and Under Milkwood have become modern classics. Much admired by the Beatles and Bob Dylan, he has since been transformed into an icon of pop culture. The life of Dylan Thomas is explored, and dramatic readings of a selection of his poetical work are presented in period costume. Appearing as the poet himself – the audience is ‘transported’ into the ‘still beating heart’ of Dylan Thomas ~ the Man, the Poet, the Icon!
