Under Milk Wood

Under Milk Woodby Dylan Thomas

UMW BSL video from Progress Theatre on Vimeo.

26 April - 4 May 2024

In this inclusive production of Under Milk Wood, we meet a host of larger-than-life characters, some mournful, some comic, from a fictitious Welsh town Llareggub (spell it backwards). We see into their day and night dreams and secret desires.
Two voices narrate a night and a day in the life of these colourful characters, in the unique and memorable poetry of Dylan Thomas.

There will be reduced capacity/relaxed performances on Saturday 27th April and Tuesday 30th April shows.

This project has been supported by funding from the Reading Seed Fund, run by Reading Borough Council and Creative Lives.

The performance on Saturday 27th April features a BSL interpreter who is on stage and integrated into the performance; almost like another character. The interpreter will use British Sign Language to interpret the show live. 

BSL performances provide deaf or hard of hearing patrons with a way to access theatre using their first or preferred language of communication.
