SWANSEA-born actor Rhodri Miles stars in the fantastic play Clown In The Moon when the tour comes to Cardigan’s Theatr Mwldan on Thursday, February 15.

Clown In The Moon (the title of a poem written when Dylan Thomas was 14) by Gwynne Edwards is a dramatic portrait of the poet's chaotic, frequently hilarious and all too brief life.

Located in a BBC studio, it sets some of Dylan's famous broadcasts and iconic works alongside vivid reminiscences of his clownish antics in pubs, bars and parties, and his encounters with a host of eccentric and volatile women.

“My early work came out of a person who came willy-nilly out of one particular atmosphere and environment and are part and parcel, park and castle, lark and sea shell, dark and school bell, muck and entrail, cock, rock and bubble, accent and sea-lap, root and rhythm of them,” said Thomas.

Rhodri Miles has starred in film and television (Holby City, Torchwood, Game of Thrones, Hinterland, Eastern Promises) and is no stranger to the stage.

Miles played the legendary actor Richard Burton in another celebrated one-man show Burton (which won Best International Show Award at the Hollywood Fringe Theatre Festival in 2010) and was also written by Gwynne Edwards.

Most recently, Miles has played Lodovico in Othello at the Sheffield Crucible Theatre, opposite Dominic West’s Iago.

Clown In The Moon is described by The Scotsman as a “charming, elegant one-man show which struggles to remove itself from the memory”, while Broadway Baby says it is “mesmeric, flawless”.

Tickets to see Clown In The Moon are £13 (£11) £3 mates rates (a scheme for 11 to 18-year-olds, please see Theatr Mwldan’s website for details) and are available now from Theatr Mwldan’s box office on 01239 621200, online at www.mwldan.co.uk or via the new Mwldan app.
