Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas

Under Milk Wood

by Dylan Thomas


Title Details

Audio Original
Running Time
1 Hr. 41 Min.


From their dreamy dreams to their work-day gossip, Dylan Thomas' lyrical masterpiece traces the lives of a group of villagers in a tiny Welsh seaport.

Blind Captain Cat sits in the window of Schooner House, listening as the boys and girls, the postman, the gossips, dressmaker, preacher, and publican all pass by.

With words good enough to eat, Thomas portrays their innermost thoughts, from fantasy dreamworld to waking lives, full of a riotous mix of prudery and bawdiness.

This BBC radio drama of Under Milk Wood is the full version broadcast in 1963, which includes several passages omitted from the first recording in 1954. With his incomparable rich Welsh voice, Richard Burton reads the role that Thomas himself was originally to have played.
