A punchy dance performance at the Edinburgh Fringe shines a rare spotlight on Caitlin Thomas – whose husband Dylan was one of Britain's greatest 20th-century writers – and the brutal self-inflicted torture of an alcoholic relationship.The show at the world's largest arts festival has around a dozen spoken lines by Caitlin, a dancer whose name has always been in the shadow of the author of "Under Milk Wood".Thomas died in 1953 during a United States poetry tour, aged 39 .Originally conceived as part of the centenary of Thomas' birth in 2014, the impact and intimacy of "Caitlin" has given it a longer life and the company hopes to perform it more widely having toured extensively in Wales.
