Event Description

Winner of Best Dance Production in Wales Theatre Awards 2014 & on its way to Edinburgh Fringe 2015.

Caitlin was the wife of poet Dylan Thomas. At the start of the 70s, 20 years after he died, she started going to Alcoholics Anonymous.

In a circle of chairs, set out for an AA meeting Caitlin makes a determined effort to deal with her tempestuous past. The audience sits in the circle with Caitlin as she re- visits her life with Dylan. It is a relationship fuelled by love, addiction, jealousy and infidelity.

As Caitlin and Dylan drink, fight, love and leave each other the unoccupied chairs become part of the action in this physical and powerful duet.
