Paul Levy talks to Christine Kempell about Caitlin.
“Before the poet Dylan Thomas drank himself to death at the age of 39, he and his wife Caitlin binged and brawled their way all around the bars of Britain in the 1930s and 40s. In this one-woman show, Caitlin tells the story in her own brutally honest words, about her stormy but passionate, booze-fueled and infidelity-riddled marriage to the tragic genius and her own unfulfilled ambitions. “He had his poetry. He was a poet. You will have heard of him. And Caitlin Macnamara? Chances are that if you’ve heard of me. It’s because I married him.””
