A season of plays presented by 2nd Year Edge Hill University Drama Students

An Island Expressionism

It is often thought that the European Expressionist Movement, which reached its apotheosis in the 1920s and 30s, had little impact on the theatre in this country. Here we attempt to disprove the critics with a bold selection of work characterised by their fluid use of poetry and song, startling imagery and epic communitarian spirit.

Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas
Tuesday 20th March 7:30pm
Wednesday 21st March 7:30pm

Twenty-four hours in the life of a small Welsh seaside town: this great play needs no introduction. “It is all about religion, sex and death,” said Richard Burton, adding, “it is a comic masterpiece.”  But it is the love of men and women, as Thomas said “with all their crudities, doubts, and confusions”  that propels the play.

We are not wholly bad or good
Who live our lives under Milk Wood

“Dylan Thomas’s beautiful, bawdy, affectionate, reckless, and deeply original play was justly crowned at its first performance by a storm of cheers” Sunday Times
