Under Milkwood: A Play for Voices


By Wallingford Pub... - Posted on 15 July 2010

Thursday, July 29th at 2:00 p.m. in the Community Room

A company of 10 Ashlarians (Ashlar Village Residents) will give a special library matinee performance of Dylan Thomas’ Under Milkwood. The story takes place in the fictional Welsh seacoast town of Llareggub (buggerall, backwards!). Two narrators describe the time and place with Thomas’ colorful poetry, while the other eight performers enact the various characters. Participating will be Lois Read, director and first voice, Cecilia Malin, second voice, and Lois Gillespie, Beth Mitchell, Barbara Pratt, Melanie Anastasio, Ernie Hoffman, Vinny Varone, Ken Donadio, and Charlie Shaffert reading all the citizens of the town. This play was originally written as a play for voices for the radio and later adapted for the stage and film. Admission is free and open to all.
