In the 1920s, Dylan Thomas and a gang of friends hitched lifts from Swansea Town to the far-off wilds of western Gower. They were going camping for a fortnight in Rhossili… Little did they know, that when they got there, there would be luscious ladies, beastly bullies and problems aplenty.
This amazing trip was immortalised a year later by Dylan when he wrote a short story for A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog; a story about his mild-mannered friend called George Hooping, a short story that he called Extraordinary Little Cough. Swansea’s Lighthouse Theatre bring their unique story-telling style to the National Trust by recreating the experience of Dylan on a walk along the cliffs to the Coastguard Lookout.
