Frank Conway said:
Stephen Rea is a rare breed of artist, with his particular level of talent, vision and passion. I am proud to have collaborated with him and Sam Shepard for Field Day Theatre Company in Derry. The fact that the design was chosen to represent the United Kingdom at such an important international event as PQ15, a gathering of the best in global scenography over four years, is a testament to the level of collaboration and excellence that Field Day espouses.
