Dylan Thomas (1914–1953) was a Welsh poet and playwright. Thomas wrote short documentary scripts, but his most famous dramatic work is his 'play for voices' Under Milk Wood, showing through his rich allusive poetry moments of sex, love and death over twenty-three hours in the fictional seaside town of Llareggub. from Dan Rebellato, The Continuum Companion to Twentieth-Century Theatre, ed.
