The King’s Head Theatre does an interview with Sean Mathias who talks about his play A Prayer for Wings. This was a play written by Sean 35 years ago and played first at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Inspired by his mother nursing his father as he was dying, this play has a very personal motivation for Sean.
Watch to see his excitement at bringing A Prayer For Wings back to the stage and how it’s stood the test of time.
About King’s Head Theatre:
The King’s Head Theatre was established in 1970. Passionate about championing ethically produced fringe theatre, we are known for our challenging work and support of young artists. Last year 116,151 audience members saw a show of ours: 44,607 at our 110-seater home on Upper Street and 71,544 elsewhere.
At our home in Islington we had 774 performances last year of 95 different shows. We are committed to fighting prejudice through the work we stage, the artists and staff we work with and by producing work for minority audience groups. We believe in fair pay for all on the fringe and create accessible routes for early career artists to stage their work; work we are passionate about.
