Americana: Utah Blue / Over Milk Wood  

Americana:  Utah Blue / Over Milk Wood $19.95 ex GST
$21.95 inc GST

Two plays from this uncompromising Welsh dramatist about what he calls ‘the evicted’. His characters serve as a metaphor for Wales itself: lost, angry and in search of an identity.

Utah Blue
a powerful reworking of the story of Gary Gilmore, the man who killed two black men and then famously insisted the state carry out the death penalty it had imposed upon him.

Review
A brooding, provocative play...a challenging piece...uncompromising in its violence, brutality and sexual obsession - Independent

Over Milk Wood 
follow Hugh Pugh, a character of Dylan Thomas, as he heads into the Bronx, trying to exorcise the curse of being portrayed as a murderer.

DIC EDWARDS has worked on over 20 productions. His work has won critical praise and popular acclaim, but has also garnered controversy: In 2002, Welsh Nationalists took to the stage and conducted walk outs during the run of his play Franco’s Bastard at Wales' Chapter Arts Centre. Edwards was born in Cardiff, where his first play was produced in 1982. At the End of the Bay appeared at a time when new theatre in the English language in Wales was almost non-existent. Since then his work has been produced across the UK, including the Royal Court Theatre and The Citizens' Theatre in Glasgow.
