Armadillo – little armoured one. [Spanish]


A teenage girl disappears from a small town in America where fifteen years earlier, another teenage girl was kidnapped. Now a woman, she watches the news. She reaches for her gun. She holds it close.

From writer Sarah Kosar (Mumburger, Old Red Lion, Old Vic 12, 2018) and director Sara Joyce (★★★★★ Dust, Trafalgar Studios, Old Vic 12, 2018) comes a show about the dangerous ways we make ourselves feel safe.

With a cast including Michelle Fox (Casualty, BBC1; Translations, National Theatre) with more to be announced.
