The cast of Welsh and Welsh-American actors includes Matthew Rhys, Kate Burton, Laura Evans, John Francis, Jason Hughes, Christopher Monger, Cerris Morgan-Moyer, Jo Osmond and Morgan Ritchie. Sara Sugarman directs.

Under Milk Wood is described as "Thomas' intensely beautiful, poignant and sublimely funny linguistic tour-de-force about the salty little fishing village of Llareggub — an enchanted spot where the wicked are forgiven and their indiscretions transformed into rich fuel for comedy."

Original music was composed by Ceiri Torjussen.

Each performance will be recorded live in front of an audience (without sets or costumes), and the final version will air on LATW’s syndicated radio theatre series, broadcasting weekly on public radio stations nationwide (locally, in Southern California, on KPFK 90.7 FM) and available for streaming on demand at latw.org.

Susan A. Loewenberg produces.

James Bridges Theater at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television is located at 235 Charles E. Young Drive in Los Angeles. For tickets call (310) 827-0889 or visit latw.org.
