Review: A PRAYER FOR WINGS at The King's Head Theatre

A Prayer For Wings This play was originally performed in 1985, and explores the realities of high unemployment, unending poverty and the blight of hidden carers, the offspring who are burdened with the necessity of looking after a chronically dependant parent.

To see a production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM on a balmy midsummer night, in a forest (well, the trees do cradle the stage) when so much of its action takes place in such a setting, is a real treat. When the production is also visually striking and the actors not only excellent Shakespearean performers but able to punch the humour to the front of their performance, well, you are really onto a winner.
