What inspired acclaimed author of The Prophet, Khalil Gibran, to write?
What moved him to such profound philosophy in his later life?
An autobiographical account of Khalil Gibran’s first love, Broken Wings is a moving new musical adaptation of the iconic poet’s 1912 masterpiece.
“The music was stunning and the singers and actors talents evident, full of believable emotion and skill.”
The Daily Star
The events of Broken Wings highlight key issues of the time, yet the themes and debates raised remain increasingly relevant today, over a century later; the fight for gender equality, the freedom to love who we love, tradition versus modernity, wealth versus happiness, immigration and the importance of ‘home’.
Written by Middle Eastern duo Nadim Naaman and Dana Al Fardan, and directed by Bronagh Lagan, produced by Ali Matar with orchestrations by Joe Davison.
