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 part of Henry Naylor's Arabian Nightmares trilogy. It was first performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016, where it won a Fringe First award.

Angel is also available in the volume Arabian Nightmares.

'Riveting; war reportage in verbal form: a tale of witness from on the ground in Syria... I would see it again, in an instant'

The Times

'A moving and exciting piece of theatre... filled with a surprising amount of humour, offset with a great deal of pathos'
