Emlyn Williams

Emlyn Williams (1905-1987) was an acclaimed writer, director, and actor – and often all three at once, as he was for the original production of The Corn is Green in 1938. His twenty plays include Night Must Fall, Port Said, A Murder Has Been Arranged, The Druid’s Rest, The Wind of Heaven, Yesterday’s Magic, The Morning Star, and Someone Waiting. He directed frequently for stages both in the West End and on Broadway. As an actor, he internationally toured readings from the work of Charles Dickens and Dylan Thomas, as well as appearing in his own plays, countless classic and contemporary productions, and forty-one films. In addition to authoring or co-authoring nineteen screenplays, he wrote, directed, and appeared in the film The Last Days of Dolwyn. He penned two autobiographies, George and Emlyn; a work of non-fiction, Beyond Belief; and a novel, Headlong.
