Here we are nibbling away all day and night, Mrs Dacey. Nibble nibble. No sense, no order, no nothing, we're all mad and nasty. Samuel Bennett leaves his home in South Wales to pursue a career in London. Setting out with an attitude of reckless, nihilistic purpose, he encounters a nightmarish city with an assortment of bizarre characters and an embarrassing first sexual experience. Join Samuel as he meanders through this dreamlike world, all with a beer bottle stuck on his little finger. Dylan Thomas's gloriously surreal coming-of-age and unfinished novel is given new life by acclaimed writer Lucy Gough. Originally premiered in Wales in 2014, the adaptation was then performed in both Sydney and Melbourne, Australia in 2015. It is published here in Methuen Drama's Plays for Young People series, pitched at ages 16-18. It features an introduction by Sam Mackie, Head of Drama in the English Faculty at The Peninsula School, Victoria.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Lucy Gough has adapted it for the stage and she has created a new play in the unmistakable tones of Thomas . . . What Lucy Gough allows us to hear is the unmistakeable voice of Dylan Thomas grappling with recalcitrant material and providing the audience with entertaining diversion while he struggles. -- Victor Hallett * Theatre in Wales *
Dylan Thomas devotees who make the effort to go along will be entranced, amused, and perhaps a little shocked.? -- Othniel Smith * British Theatre Guide *
Dylan Thomas's gloriously surreal coming of age (and unfinished) novel about a young man adrift in a nightmarish, nihilistic London is given new life and energy by acclaimed writer Lucy Gough. * Daily Telegraph *
