“Outstanding, one of the defining portrayals of the Swansea-born poet on stage. Wales Arts Review
Celebrating 100 years since Thomas’ birth CLOWN IN THE MOON (the title of a poem written when Dylan was 14) is a dramatic portrait of the poet’s chaotic, frequently hilarious, and all too brief life. Located in a BBC studio, it sets some of Dylan’s famous broadcasts and iconic works alongside vivid reminiscences of his clownish antics in pubs, bars and parties, and his encounters with a host of eccentric and volatile women. Written by award winner Gwynne Edwards (Burton, Dylan Thomas in America). Directed by Gareth Armstrong (Shylock, My Darling Clemmie, Rape of Lucrece, Sherlock Holmes – The Last Act) Lighting: Maximilian Spielbichler.
Rhodri Miles (Richard II-Hollow Crown Series, Eastern Promises, Atlantis, Game of Thrones) returns to the stage to play Dylan Thomas after his previous sell-out tour of the critically acclaimed ‘Burton’, winner of the ‘Best International Show’ at the Hollywood Fringe Festival – 2010. www.rhodrimiles.com
