Americana: Utah Blue / Over Milk Wood

Dic Edwards

PaperBack (15 Jul 2000)

The plays of this uncompromising Welsh dramatist are about what he calls ‘the evicted’. His characters serve as a metaphor for Wales itself: lost, angry and in search of an identity. Utah Blue is a powerful reworking of the story of Gary Gilmore, the man who killed two black men and then famously insisted the state carry out the death penalty it had imposed upon him. In Over Milk Wood we follow Hugh Pugh, a character from the work Dylan Thomas, as he heads into the Bronx, trying to exercise the curse of being portrayed as a murderer.
