'What Laugharne really needs is a play about well-known Laugharne characters – and get them all to play themselves.' – Dylan Thomas
Directed by Marc Rees. Written by Jon Tregenna.
Online concept developed by the Raw Materials Creative Team with Play Nicely and delivered by Play Nicely.
This experience will take you on a journey through Laugharne – the place that inspired Under Milk Wood,
and 'the strangest town in Wales' according to Dylan Thomas.
Each year, the amateur dramatic company of the town, The Laugharne Players, re-enact Thomas’s famous play. But often their daily lives are as extraordinary as any of Thomas’s tales, and if you ask them about the past, they’ll tell you stories of murder, madness and mayhem.
This site is a digital reimagining of a collaboration between National Theatre Wales and BBC Cymru Wales: Raw Material: Llareggub Revisited. The event happened in May 2014 and was part of the Dylan Thomas Poetry, Biography And Film Weekend, itself a part of the extended Laugharne Literature Festival and the Dylan Thomas 100 Festival, a year-long celebration of the writer’s centenary. It was a star-studded, multi-platform, site-specific reimagining of Thomas’s Under Milk Wood, featuring theatrical installations across the town of Laugharne, and pre-recorded performances from some of Wales’s best-known actors and singers.
