Rita and Mam live in poverty in a disused church in central Swansea. Mam is suffering from multiple sclerosis and Rita is her daughter, minder, keeper.  With wit, passion and fierce sexuality these two heroines battle through their daily life like warriors competing for their individual survival.

Mathias wrote this in his late twenties and the Daily Mail raved: "This is a work with all the marks of a mature and major writer. Compassion, humour, wit and truth ... a magnificent tale of female heroism"

A Prayer For Wings won a Fringe First Award at its debut in Edinburgh in 1985 and earned Mathias a nomination for Most Promising Playwright. He has since gone on to become an award winning director of international repute. This will be the first time he has directed his own work for more than three decades.
