Under Milk Wood
Atwater Village, CA , 90039
Intensely beautiful, poignant and sublimely funny, this “play for voices” by the great Welsh poet Dylan Thomas recounts the dreams, gossip and waking hours of the sleepy, Welsh seaside town of Llareggub — a name that seems innocent enough until you read it backwards. Unforgettable characters such as Captain Cat, Myfanwy Price, the Reverend Ely Jenkins, Organ Morgan, Polly Garter and Dai Bread populate this odd place, and their affectionate charm and humor still captivate and entertain 65 years after it was written. July 20 through Aug. 25: Fridays, and Saturdays at 8:p.m., and Sundays at 7 p.m. Open Fist Theatre Company at Atwater Village Theatre, 3269 Casitas Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90039; July 20-July 22 (previews): Pay-What-You-Want; July 27-Aug 25: $20; (323) 882-6912; www.openfist.org.
