DYLAN THOMAS: CLOWN IN THE MOON

“Hilarious and poignant” South Wales Evening Post*****

Celebrating 100 years since Thomas’ birth CLOWN IN THE MOON (the title of a poem written when Dylan was 14) is a dramatic portrait of the poet’s chaotic, frequently hilarious, and all too brief life. Located in a BBC studio, it sets some of Dylan’s famous broadcasts and iconic works alongside vivid reminiscences of his clownish antics in pubs, bars and parties, and his encounters with a host of eccentric and volatile women.

Written by award winner Gwynne Edwards (Burton, Dylan Thomas in America). Directed by Gareth Armstrong (Shylock, My Darling Clemmie, Rape of Lucrece, Sherlock Holmes – The Last Act) Lighting: Maximilian Spielbichler.

Rhodri Miles (Richard II-Hollow Crown Series, Eastern Promises, Atlantis, Game of Thrones) returns to the stage to play Dylan Thomas after his previous sell-out tour of the critically acclaimed ‘Burton’, winner of the ‘Best International Show’ at the Hollywood Fringe Festival – 2010.

“My early work came out of a person who came willy-nilly out of one particular atmosphere and environment and are part and parcel, park and castle, lark and sea shell, dark and school bell, muck and entrail, cock, rock and bubble, accent and sea-lap, root and rhythm of them”
