2014 is the centenary of the birth of Dylan Thomas and to celebrate the event Mere Amateur Dramatic Society (MADS) are putting on his most famous work “Under Milk Wood” the delightfully imaginative journey through a day in the life of a welsh fishing village. Crammed with colourful characters, 63 in all, the play, originally written for radio, is like a fly on the wall documentary drawing the audience into the real welshness of Wales, through the dreams of it’s inhabitants, along the cobbled streets into the fishermen’s cottages and down to the salty sea.
To put on the stage a play written for radio takes some doing and to this end MADS have designed and constructed a special set to bring to life the characters and their surroundings with all the colour of Dylan Thomas’ beautiful words. This production of Under Milk Wood by MADS could be described as a Village doing a Village or just acting ourselves.
The production is being staged on 20th, 21st & 22nd March 7.30 pm at the Mere Lecture Hall (BA12 6HE) tickets available from Mere Library or call 01747-861257
