Celebrating the genius of Dylan Thomas, these two productions shine very different lights on the renowned author. Badgers in my Vest is a darkly funny play by John Fletcher, based on a true incident in Thomas's life; Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog features five short stories by Thomas himself, read by Welsh actors.
Badgers in my Vest: Unfit to fight in World War II, Dylan Thomas spends his time in Newquay in the local pub, cadging drinks and being outrageous. Privately, he is terrified, suffering nightmares, and in the grip of writer's block. One night, a soldier comes in. Having found poetry a solace in the face of human brutality, he hopes to exchange views on beauty and truth with Thomas. Instead he is goaded to semi-hysteria and goes for his gun..

Portrait of an Artist as a Young Dog: 'Patricia, Edith and Arnold', read by Sian Phillips, 'A Visit to Grandpa's', read by Geraint Morgan, 'Extraordinary Little Cough', read by Iestyn Jones, 'The Followers', read by William Thomas and 'A Story', read by Matthew Rhys.
