Celebrating 100 years of the life and work of Dylan Thomas we present

Portrait of Dylan

BY TONY LAYTON

DIRECTED BY HARRY DURNALL

Dylan Thomas's mark on Wales runs deep. He was hugely popular during his lifetime, gaining international literary fame and was lauded around the globe for his unique and distinctly Welsh take on the world he lived in. He was born in Swansea in 1914 and his writing gives us an insight into his upbringing and experiences. They are words of beauty and poetry that have lasted long after his death and will continue for generations to come. 'Portrait of Dylan' is a result of the author's long association with the world of Dylan and sets out to trace his life from his childhood in Swansea to his untimely death in New York. Dylan was a complex individual. A talented writer and broadcaster, a ready wit and severe critic, and someone who enjoyed a varied and colourful love life...and alcohol!

This honest, no-holes-barred play weaves these strands together to give us a true account of what we know of Dylan's life...a theatrical delight.

Louche Theatre will present ' Portrait of Dylan' from Friday 2nd May to Sunday 4th May at The Morlan Centre, Queens Road, Aberystwyth at 7.30pm plus matinees at 2.30pm on the 3rd and 4th May.

Following the Aberystwyth run there will be a short tour of venues in west Wales. Please call the box office on 01970 612617 for details.
