Overview

US PREMIERE

2014, Kobanî, Northern Syria: there is a siege as fierce as Stalingrad. ISIL, having steam-rolled through Iraq, expects to take the town easily. The desperate Kobanis have only their determination and aging Russian rifles. Defeat seems inevitable, but a heroine emerges: a crackshot sniper—a member of a band of Kurdish female fighters—with 100 kills to her name. She is the angel of Kobanî. Inspired by a true story, Henry Naylor’s one-woman monologue won prestigious awards at the Adelaide and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, as well as critical praise: “It’s riveting; war reportage in verbal form” (The Times).
