“A dazzling combination of poetic fireworks and music hall humour”
On the Metro stage May 5 -14, 2023.
Come to a tiny village where the inhabitants all seem a bit eccentric if not quite mad! Yet the more we follow them through the day, the more we come to identify with them if not love them.
Meet the blind Captain Cat, after a life “sardined with women”, NoGood Boyo up to no good in the wash-house, the obsessive Mrs. Ogmore Pritchard who “polishes her potatoes”, while young Mae Rose, 17 and never been kissed, yearns to be bad “I’ll sin till I blow up!”.
More than anything , Thomas’ flawed villagers, in their world of yearnings, gossip and memories, remind us of what it is to be human in all its glorious, intricate complexity.
“We all have yearnings we keep to ourselves, secret loves and odd habits we’d rather others not know about. Dylan Thomas gets below the skin of the villagers to reveal their own idiosyncrasies, perhaps a little larger than our own but oh so human, with resulting hilarious, sad and tender moments.”
Joan Bryans, director
