ANGEL BY HENRY NAYLOR

About

Kobane, 2014: a siege as fierce as Stalingrad. ISIS, having steam-rollered through Iraq, expect to take the town easily. But the citizens have found a heroine: a crackshot sniper. And she appears indestructible. She’s the Angel of Kobane. ★★★★★ (The Times)

Reviews, awards, more information

'... one of the most brilliant and harrowing performances this reviewer has ever witnessed. Avital Lvova is magnificent. In fact, this production has exhausted my vocabulary of superlatives.' (Theater Pizzazz, New York)

'... unadorned and simple, but pulsating with a rich admixture of poetry and punch. Henry Naylor’s complex text is subtle, imaginative and driven by a compassionate, righteous beauty.' (John Wells, Adelaide Theatre Guide)

‘A magnificent challenging show.' ★★★★ (Scotsman)

'One of the most powerful pieces of theatre I’ve seen in a long time.' (BBC Radio 4, Front Row)

'Important, frightening and happening now.' ★★★★★ (Three Weeks)

‘War reportage at its best.’ (The Times)
