About the Show/Event
Information for Under Milk Wood at Olivier (National Theatre), West End (Play). Lyrical piece about life in a Welsh fishing village.

Walk along Coronation Street, Cockle Row and Donkey Street, down to the little fishing harbour and back to Milk Wood. Join the townsfolk as Dylan Thomas explores their lives, hopes and thoughts in the dreams of a night and rhythm of a day, from the first light of dawn into a busy morning and through the long, slow afternoon.
