Welsh Events in Chicago – Spring/Summer 2010

2009 was yet another great year of Welsh reading, rugby and rock n’ roll in Chicago! Between the Wales v USA rugby at Toyota Park, readings from Welsh authors Rhys Bowen & Niall Griffiths, a 5-week run of the Dylan Thomas play, “Under Milk Wood”, and concerts with The Manic Street Preachers, Tom Jones, Paul Potts, Los Campesinos!, Bullet for my Valentine, Oceans Apart, Judith Owen and multiple performances by our local Chicago Welsh artists Jon Langford (The Waco Brothers) and Elia Einhorn (The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir).

2010 is shaping up to be another year of top quality Welsh events in the windy city, with all that is going on Chicago could be the best place to be Welsh outside of Wales!!

Film – The Proud Valley
Lakeshore Public Television (WYIN Channel 56)
Set your DVR’s, Tivo’s etc! Lakeshore Public Television is doing a rare showing of the golden oldie Welsh film ‘The Proud Valley’ on Saturday night. Starring the legendary Paul Robeson as David Goliath, an African-American who arrives in Wales in the 1930’s. ‘The Proud Valley’ is no hokey ‘How Green Was My Valley’. A sobering gritty and at times brutal portrayal of the hardships of mining in Wales, with the horrors of mine explosions, runaway mine carts and death underground. Though Lakeshore Public Television is Northwest Indiana’s PBS station, it is available in the Chicago area.For more information visit: http://www.lakeshoreptv.com/main.taf?p=5,7

But in the privacy of their room, the girls’ fantasy life blossomed as they wrote hyper-kinetic novels of teenage lust and rebellion. http://www.steppenwolf.org/boxoffice/produ...dex.aspx?id=500
