Welcome to Llareggub
on 18 April 2014
Sixty years ago Dylan Thomas' famous play was first heard on the BBC, and since then people have still kept coming back to it. Narrated by Richard Burton and others playing the characters this has become a classic to listen to, not just to read. I must admit that although I have read the actual play many times over the years it has been ages since I have listened to it, which is really the ideal way with this.
Set in the fictional town of Llareggub the writing is so lyrical and poetic and is a pure pleasure to read, and even more so to listen to as here you get the full musicality of the voices, really bringing this to life.
Although you can listen to this at any time, I think probably the best time of all is lying in bed with headphones on, thus you can really relax before going to sleep, and have pleasant dreams. Closing your eyes really helps you to imagine this place and the inhabitants.
