- DYLAN THOMAS
- THE RETURN JOURNEY~*
Words by Dylan Thomas, Performed by Bob Kingdom
Directed by Anthony Hopkins
Southport Arts Centre - Friday 12 September, 8pm
"Working with him has been a revelation, because I realise how passionately he feels and identifies with Thomas. Bob Kingdom not only identifies with Dylan Thomas but sometimes, and often, the two
personalities seem to merge. It is a remarkable performance."
The electrifying presence of poet Dylan Thomas is reincarnated in an extraordinary world-renowned solo performance. Dylan Thomas, on his last lecture tour, the last before the White Horse Pub and the legendary seventeen whiskies, is in our presence.
Bob Kingdom's portrayal of his famous countryman is tangibly heartfelt and utterly convincing; audiences could swear it was the poet himself on stage. This is a tour de force of dramatic storytelling, a celebration of a mighty man and his love of language; truly an evening to savour.
Under Anthony Hopkins' minimalist direction, performer and audience are as one in appreciation of the beauty, the humour, the passion and wit of the words of this great wordsmith.
Tickets are priced at £8 (£6 concessions) available from the Box Office on (01704) 540011.
