Number 5 Cwmdonkin Drive by Liz Wride

Tom Dylan’s 18th birthday celebrations falls on the same day as the celebration of the centenary of Dylan Thomas . There is another coincidence, he with his mam and dad are living in Dylan”s birthplace at 5 Cwmdokin Drive. In Liz Wride’s hilarious play some of the characters created by Dylan Thomas seem to come to life to make sure Tom’s birthday goes with a bang.
