Love Somehow

30 April
Love Somehow

Directed by Kate Cheeseman

Caitlin Thomas was a dancer, writer and the woman behind the famous/infamous and brilliant Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. She partied as hard as him, advised him, loved him, kept him sober enough to write his poetry and brought up their family on no money, finally surviving his early death. Very little is written about Caitlin, her role in their legend or her recovery, and most portrayals are laughably inaccurate. This is an acclaimed film showing Caitlin's poetic version of her life with Dylan.

This special screening of Love Somehow, directed by Kate Cheeseman and starring RSC actress Sally George and Griff Rhys Jones as the voice of Dylan Thomas, includes a Q&A with writer and poet Phil Bowen, who produced the original one-woman show on which the film – with a screenplay by BAFTA-winning Anna Maloney – is based.
