In 1953, poet Dylan Thomas died. Twenty years later, his wife Caitlin goes to Alcoholics Anonymous. Sitting in a circle of chairs set out for an AA meeting, Caitlin revisits her life with Dylan – a relationship fuelled by love, addiction, jealousy and infidelity. As Caitlin and Dylan drink, fight, love and leave each other, the unoccupied chairs around them become part of their story in this physical and powerful duet.

An immersive dance theatre experience which brings together acclaimed artists Eddie Ladd, Gwyn Emberton and Deborah Light.

With thanks to National Library of Wales, Chapter, Coreo Cymru and Welsh Dance Strand.

This show defied anyone from not being captivated, totally engrossed and at times shocked with its veracity. Wales Theatre Awards, 2014

It is a wonderful, movingly truthful ending to a peerless and revelatory performance. Wales Arts Review, 2014

Winner of the Wales Theatre Award for Best Dance Production 2015
