    Badgers in my vest is a new, darkly funny play by an acclaimed contemporary playwright, based on a true incident in Dylan Thomas' life. Deemed unfit to fight in World War II, Dylan Thomas spends his time in Newquay in the local pub, cadging drinks, laughing at the Welsh behind their back and being outrageous. Privately, he is terrified, suffering nightmares and in the grip of writer's block. Then one night, a soldier comes in.

    This is the story of the battle between appeasers and anti-appeasers in the period before - and just after - the start of the Second World War, and the formation of the 1940 coalition government which, like the election of 2010, abruptly ruptured all previous political alignments. Based on real events, this is a fascinating and little known tale of idealism, blackmail, and political skulduggery.
