Syria, 2014. In the town of Kobane, there’s a siege as fierce as Stalingrad. ISIS, having steam-rollered through Iraq, are expecting to take the town easily. But the citizens have found a heroine: a crackshot sniper with 100 kills to her name. And she appears indestructible. She’s the legendary Angel of Kobane.
Inspired by an extraordinary true story, Angel is the critically-acclaimed new drama from playwright Henry Naylor. Following a sold-out run in Edinburgh, where it won a prestigious Fringe First award, it premieres in London for four weeks only. Michael Cabot (Marat Sade, Pera Palas) returns to Arcola to direct Avital Lvova in the title role.
Outstanding new writing… A magnificent, challenging show
A compelling story of success against adversity
A terrific tour de force
