Background


London audiences have a rare chance to see Sean Mathias direct his own work, with the transfer of his award-winning play A Prayer For Wings, following its run at Volcano Theatre in Swansea in summer 2019, produced by Bill Kenwright Ltd, Swansea Grand and Alex Turner Productions.


This compelling production features an all-Welsh cast, comprising of Llinos Daniel, Alis Wyn Davies and Luke Rhodri.


Alarmingly relevant, Sean Mathias' debut play explores the conflict and burden of caring responsibilities, interdependence and family, set against an individual's hopes and dreams.


Sean Mathias returns to the King's Head Theatre, where he was first supported as a fledgling playwright, and is best known for his work as a stage and screen director, including Ian McKellen On Stage, Waiting for Godot, No Man's Land, A Little Night Music, Les Parents Terribles and the award-winning film of Martin Sherman's Bent.


Synopsis


A Prayer For Wings tells the story of a mother and daughter, who have no other family and live in a disused church in central Swansea.


With her mother suffering from multiple sclerosis (MS), Rita has been her minder and keeper since she was ten years old.


Weary of the responsibility, Rita dreams of a better life, with a wonderful man, in another country, so she sells sexual favours for cash.
