Tom Cat and Rosie Probert in bed b_w1972 / UK / 88 mins / Dir: Andrew Sinclair.                           Cast includes: Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Peter O’Toole and David Jason


To mark the centenary of the birth of iconic writer Dylan Thomas, English PEN presents a screening of the film adaptation of Under Milk Wood starring icons of cinema Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor and Peter O’Toole.

A celebration of religion, sex and death, Under Milk Wood follows the people and events in a small Welsh harbour village over the course of one night.

The film is notable for being the only film to combine the stellar talents of Burton, Taylor and O’Toole. It was shot primarily on location in Wales and has since acquired a reputation among aficionados as a cult movie.

All proceeds from ticket sales go to benefit English PEN.

‘The film, beautifully photographed and spoken, casts the brooding spell of Thomas’ verse in its reconstruction of the seaside village and the daily round of its inhabitants.’  The International Herald Tribune
