This production must rank as one of Everyman Theatre Company’s most ambitious undertakings to date, involving, as it does, over 50 people from either side of the globe.
How did it begin?
Mullumbimby, NSW, March 2015: After a successful run of “From Laugharne to Mullumbimby” – a telling of Dylan Thomas’ life-story through his poems, plays, short stories, radio broadcasts and letters – everyone gathered for a few ‘schooners’ in The Middle Pub. This is where the seeds of this collaborative project began..
Days later, Greg Aitken gave director Ray Thomas a copy of Australian playwright Patricia Cornelius’ award-winning play. It seemed to have been destined for a joint Australian/Welsh venture, and the project was born.
