Time Out London
June 22nd, 2021

Michael Sheen is terrific in Dylan Thomas’s linguistic tour de force, which remains undimmed by the years.

This stage version of the great Welsh ‘play for voices’ is a sensuous portrayal of care-home residents being swept up in memories.

Occasionally, it’s very clear this was written for radio. But these are small complaints about a show so rich and moving, that puts Sheen, Johnson and Phillips on stage together.

But the drama as a whole – beyond the father and son dynamic of the framing device – remains emotionally distant as one vignette after another is delivered and feels a little wrung out as Thomas’s language loses some of its richness.

It’s a triumph, nothing less...There’s superb acting from a multitasking cast...Merle Hensel’s sets and costumes are a delight.

In Lyndsey Turner’s Olivier staging of Under Milk Wood, [Michael Sheen's] galvanising presence and knack for whipping up a storm with words make a strong and emotionally satisfying case for this popular verse drama by Dylan Thomas.
