The 1954 radio drama by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, adapted later as a stage play. A movie version, directed by Andrew Sinclair, was released in 1972, though most people will know it through the iconic 1963 BBC recording narrated by Richard Burton.
Two omniscient narrators invite the audience to listen to the dreams and innermost thoughts of the inhabitants of an imaginary small Welsh village, Llareggub (which is ‘bugger all’ spelt backwards). They include Mrs Ogmore-Pritchard, relentlessly nagging her two dead husbands; Captain Cat, reliving his seafaring days; the two Mrs Dai Breads; Organ Morgan, obsessed with his music; and Polly Garter, pining for her dead lover. The action takes place during one spring day as the town awakens and its inhabitants go about their business. Thomas’ lyrical and poetic language raises a simple tale to the level of a masterpiece.
