A Prayer For Wings
About A Prayer For Wings
This touchingly tender and strikingly relevant 1985 play tells the story of Rita, who lives in a derelict church in Swansea with her disabled mother, for whom she has been carer since she was ten years old. With Mam suffering from multiple sclerosis, and no family or friends to turn to for support, Rita fills her days with romantic dreams. She yearns for the love of a man, fantasises of escaping on a cruise ship to America and aches to fly away to a life of beauty and love.
With an all-Welsh cast featuring Llinos Daniel, Alis Wyn Davies and Luke Rhodri, this mesmerising and darkly entertaining production tells a tale of bravery with startling humour and endless passion, and explores the intense conflict of care, family and interdependence, set against a woman’s hopes and dreams.
