By: Dic Edwards (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
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.
Dic Edwards was born in Cardiff. He studied at St David's College, Lampeter, University of Wales, Cardiff and University of Wales, Aberystwyth. He has written over 20 plays, including 'Lola Brecht', 'Utah Blue ', 'The Juniper Tree ', 'Beggars New Clothes ', 'Regan', 'The Fourth World', 'Antigone Now', 'The Free Wheelers', 'Vertigo', 'Kid', 'David', 'The Man Who Gave His Foot For Love', 'The Shakespeare Factory', 'Moon River/The Deal ' and 'Over Milk Wood' which have been performed throughout the British Isles. He teaches creative writing at Aberystwyth.
