Dylan Thomas Day.

Posted by Nick Hennegan on Thursday, May 7, 2015 Under: Nick Hennegan

An Evening at The Wheatsheaf Pub, Rathbone Place, London, W1. 8pm

Dylan's Day is a celebration of Dylan Thomas.  14 May has been chosen because marks the day Under Milk Wood was first read in public.

We hope you can join us for what will be a memorable night. As you know, we produced Under Milk Wood on the 60th anniversary of Dylan's death and we were involved in Griff Rhys JonesDylan Thomas in Fitzrovia Festival, so I feel very close to the Welsh Wizard!  We're planning music, poetry and a rehearsed reading of a potential new play by... er...me!  It's provisionally called 'The Roaring Boy' and is an homage to UMW and a personal take on Dylan.  I'm actually still writing it and sending bits through to director Katie Merritt, so it will definitely be a rehearsed reading. And Hannah Ellis, Dylan's Granddaughter is coming to the Wheatsheaf too, along with a few other Dylan luminaries.  So no pressure then...
 
I hope you'll take advantage of our free tickets and I'd like to thank Literature Wales for making this possible.  The Wheatsheaf is where Dylan Thomas met Caitlin, his wife, so is a special venue.

And the pub is stocking Welsh beer for the week.

Follow us on Twitter - including my bumblings - at @mavericktheatre.

I hope you can join us on Thursday. Ticket are available on line from £5.  If you don't win a free 'un, of course.

Best wishes

Nick Hennegan
Artistic Director

About Us


Nick Hennegan Hello. I'm Nick Hennegan and I started the London Literary Pub Crawl. Most of the blogs on here will be by me. I've always written but my first theatrical success was an adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Henry V'. I founded Maverick Theatre in 1994. This pub crawl is really more a promenade theatre performance than a tour and I'm running it with a bunch of enthusiastic local actors and writers. I love sharing my passion for the area and the artists. I also present a radio show on Resonance 104.4fm - London's Arts Station. It's called 'Literary London' and is on Fridays at 7pm (and repeated Weds at 7am.) If you haven't visited us in London yet, I hope you'll come soon. And feel free to leave comments or email me at nick @ LondonLiteraryPubCrawl.com - I reply to them all and I love to hear from you.
