Tickets: $25-$41
Bookings: 5232 2077

More than 80,000 people worldwide have enjoyed this critically acclaimed production which has included sell-out seasons at London’s Lyric Hammersmith, off Broadway, Edinburgh, and The British Library. Heralded by critics worldwide as a “lyrical tour de force”, this is your chance to experience Bob Kingdom’s electrifying performance as he brings Dylan Thomas’ last lecture to life in Anthony Hopkins’ celebrated directorial debut.
Playing a man who wrestled with the psychological conflict between creative talent and self-destructive impulse, Bob Kingdom’s remarkable portrayal of his bardic countryman is tangibly heartfelt and authentic; audiences have sworn it was the poet himself.
