One woman’s brave fight against the biggest threat to her town and its people.

Angel is the legendary story of Rehana. In 2014 Kurdish families were fleeing Kobane to avoid the inevitable ISIS onslaught; Rehana stayed to fight and defend her town; as a sniper, she allegedly killed more than 100 ISIS fighters. When her story came out, she became an internet sensation and a symbol of resistance against Islamic State and dubbed the ‘Angel of Kobane’. Now, this legendary story comes to the stage in Henry Naylor’s award winning play Angel.

Angel, a one-woman show, is the third story in Henry Naylor’s Arabian Nightmares trilogy and was first staged to great acclaim at Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2016. Since then it has been seen around the world to great critical acclaim, winning awards at many international festivals. The Torch Theatre bring you their own production, directed by Peter Doran, designed by Sean Crowley and featuring Yasemin Özdemir as the eponymous Angel.

This is a hard-hitting exploration of Angel’s story, during a time when the themes are very much still relevant and present in modern society.
