Michael Elwyn (B3 1956-61) in Under Milk Wood

Michel Elwyn (B3 1956-61) wrote to us to tell us that he is back at the National Theatre in the final week of rehearsal for Under Milk Wood. The performance will be the reopening show in the socially distanced, reduced capacity, Olivier Theatre from June 16th to July 24th.

He is playing assorted characters (Mog Edwards, Mr Ogmore, Lord Cut-Glass). Michael Sheen stars as First Voice, Sian Phillips is Polly Garter. He said, “Most of the cast are over 70, so that might give you a clue as to how we are setting it!”

He also reminded us that July is the 60th anniversary of Michael Pennington and him performing Pinter’s The Dumb Waiter as the first half of their final School Concert! If anyone has any photos or memories of this performance, do get in touch.
