29 years after its Edinburgh debut, Olivier Award winner Guy Masterson presents the highlights of his globally acclaimed solo tour-de-force Under Milk Wood.

This 65 minute version is an hilarious lyrical romp through Dylan Thomas's fictional 'Llarregub'! It may be slimmed down, but it's so rich and full that audiences would be hard pressed to know what he's left out! It has to be seen to be believed! In an astonishing performance that defies expectation, Masterson whisks the audience into a wonder-world of enchantment. Bawdy and beautiful, sad and sensual, it leaves indelible, unforgettable images. The beauty of Thomas's wordplay and the mastery of Masterson's virtuosity will leave you breathless.


"Utterly spellbinding... Masterson's vocal precision, along with a wonderful range of gestures and movements, allow the audience to really feel they have experienced life in the village and shared desires and dreams of the inhabitants."

★★★★★ Edinburgh Metro

"Just the 69 characters then? Guy Masterson is everyone of them in Dylan Thomas's enduring play of voices, and somehow makes it all add up!"

★★★★★ The Scotsman

"There are no dull moments... gripping performance... very impressive"
