Description The University of WA's drama societies combined to present this fictionalised biographical drama on the later years of Welsh poet and celebrity Dylan Thomas. The play even-handedly focusses on his genius and poetic dreams as well as his irresponsible, spendthrift propensities; his wife Caitlin is poignantly portrayed. Neville Teede gave a bravura performance as Dylan.
