One of the funniest British comedies of modern times, Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas, is also renowned for its stunning lyrical language, its extraordinary townsfolk and universal themes that have made it an international favourite, translated into some 30 languages.

Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Anthony Hopkins, Michael Sheen and Rhys Ifans have all starred in versions of this marvellous play, described by Burton as “a comic masterpiece”. Under Milk Wood is set in a fictional Welsh seaside village, but it could be anywhere: the characters are eccentric, poignant, dreamers or driven, frustrated lovers, schemers, tradesmen, farmers and fishermen, preacher, postman and blind sea captain, schoolteacher, even a would-be if unlikely murderer.

Moonlight Theatre’s highly-talented cast is drawn from South Wales, where Dylan Thomas - one of the most admired and popular modern British poets and playwrights - grew up and spent most of his short life. It is also where he found the raw material for many of the play's fascinating and well-observed comic creations. The play's director, John Rhys Thomas from Swansea, is a former chair of the Dylan Thomas Society, and has taken his touring productions of Under Milk Wood to New York, Harvard and Canada to great acclaim.

This hugely enjoyable play, performed with live music, has an international reputation but - surprisingly perhaps - it has rarely been staged here, despite the characteristics shared by Wales and Malta: both small maritime nations with a proud independent culture and strong bilingual tradition.

Moonlight Theatre is excited to have the chance to showcase the work of Wales’ most celebrated modern writer to new audiences and Dylan Thomas fans alike. The lyrical and imaginative language of Milk Wood is a revelation to many who come across it for the first time, and the play never loses its comic appeal.

Evening performances daily at 7.30 pm. Tickets: 10 euros and 15 euros.
