Raw Material: Llareggub Revisited

National Theatre Wales in collaboration with BBC Cymru Wales

Created by Marc Rees and Jon Tregenna

A re-imagining of the world of Under Milk Wood including a live/broadcast event in collaboration with BBC Cymru Wales. This live theatre experience will take us on a journey through Laugharne - the place that inspired Under Milk Wood, and 'the strangest town in Wales' according to Dylan Thomas himself.

On foot, we will explore hidden and transformed spaces as we find Thomas's characters re-imagined on screen by some of Wales's most extraordinary and well-loved performers. As we go on our trail through the town, local townsfolk introduce us to the actions, habits and secrets that make today's Laugharne as curious and unique a place as it was when Thomas called it home.

Join us on this live performance adventure in this most inimitable of places.

Raw Material: Llareggub Revisited is now sold out, but text "NTW RawMaterial" to 61211 and be the first to know if more tickets become available.
You text will be charged at your standard network rate.

Film: Raw Material: Llareggub Revisited

Join the National Theatre Wales audience as they take a stroll through "the strangest town in Wales", in a live event reimagining the world of Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood, staged on May Bank Holiday 2014 in locations across Laugharne...

“a reminder that art at its best is impressionistic, imagistic, transitory”
“almost a match for the original”
“an unqualified success”
