Under Milk Wood

Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre


Guy Masterson brings Dylan Thomas’ timeless masterpiece vividly to life in an astonishing, award-winning solo performance.

Celebrating a day in the life of a small Welsh seaside town, all 69 colourful inhabitants are hilariously recreated in this astonishing one-man show which delves into the affairs and daily routines of this seemingly quiet town.

The play reveals the dreams and innermost thoughts of the villagers, including an old blind sea captain, a lazy fisherman, a sultry gypsy, and numerous ghostly residents.

Bawdy and beautiful, sad and sensual, this multi-character masterpiece is an enchanting interpretation of Dylan’s lyrical genius. Internationally acclaimed and with over 2000 performances, this astonishing performance by acting royalty is nothing short of a triumph.

Absolutely wonderful... A tour de force of this man's talent ... Guy Masterson is something exceptional.
