So we promised you a series of exciting announcements over the coming year as each of our new productions is revealed separately. And here's the first - Raw Material: Llareggub Revisited will be an extraordinary new take on Under Milk Wood, inhabiting Dylan Thomas's town of Laugharne for a weekend to deconstruct and reconstruct the classic text, in a joyful collision with the characters of today. Created by artist Marc Rees (who turned the seaside town of Barmouth into a theatre installation for our opening year production For Mountain Sand and Sea), and writer/director Jon Tregenna, who knows Laugharne and Thomas like few others, the show will take place over May bank holiday weekend and should be a must-see for hardcore Dylanistas, NTW event-lovers, and curious adventurers.
