A delight to the ears and imagination provided by “Under Milk Wood” at Northern stage last night. A Dylan Thomas play originally for radio this time staged with audience wrapped around, featuring 2 narrators to share the dreams and actions of many welsh villagers all within a day from their pre-dawn dreams.
A clever use of video and a variety of sound effects interacting with the narrators as we enjoyed a feast of language sounds for thoughts and actions from the most innermost feelings. Funny and provocative, considerate and caring, people loving.
Next week: am off to a National theatre version of MacBeth at Theatre Royal.
