Brighton Fringe PREVIEW: Caitlin @Rialto Theatre

April 19, 2018

Before Dylan Thomas drank himself to death at the tender age of 39, he and his wife Caitlin boozed, binged and brawled their way through the bars of Britain in the 1930’s and 40’s.

THEIR marriage was stormy, passionate and explosive and Caitlin tells their story, in her own brutally honest words, in this one-woman show written by Mike Kenny.

Caitlin and Dylan were great lovers, artists and bohemians mixing with other artists and writers of their day, spending all their time in pubs, living on tick, doing scandalous things and being forgiven.

Although Dylan had his tragic genius as an excuse for his behaviour, Caitlin feels that history judges her more harshly as a mother, married to the ‘Voice of God’ and having to put her own unfulfilled ambitions as a dancer on hold.

Caitlin tells their story from her perspective and reveals some shocking insights into their mutually destructive relationship.

WLTM Productions brings this one-woman show to Brighton Fringe for the first time with Christine Kempell taking on the title role of Caitlin, directed by Steve Elias (Our Dancing Town).

The play is sponsored by local Solicitors Crosby & Woods and supported by Brighton Hove and District Samaritans as part of their celebration of 50 years of listening.

There will be a voluntary collection for Samaritans at the end of each performance at the Rialto Theatre.
