Rhodri Miles presents two one-man shows at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He will play at Assembly Hall over August.

Burton vividly presents the life of the great Welsh actor from humble beginnings to Hollywood megastar. Beautiful women (not least Liz Taylor), alcohol, wealth, stage and screen are the threads woven into this sad, happy, exuberant often hilarious one-man show.

Celebrating 100 years since his birth, Dylan Thomas: Clown in the Moon (the title of a poem written when Dylan was 14) is a portrait of the poet’s chaotic, frequently hilarious and all too brief life. Located in a BBC studio, it sets Dylan’s famous broadcasts alongside vivid reminiscences of his clownish antics in pubs, bars and parties and his encounters with a host of eccentric and volatile women. Gareth Armstrong directs.

Critics have praised Rhodri as ‘outstanding… undoubtedly one of the defining portrayals of the Swansea-born poet on stage’ (WalesArtsReview.org).
