Image of an Unknown Young Woman

She is a young woman in a yellow dress. She has been shot by the police. As a video goes viral, a revolution begins to stir.

Ali and Leyla are panicking – they uploaded the footage and now the authorities are after them. Across town, Yasmin is desperate to know if her missing mother is still alive. Halfway around the world, a woman in London wants to help. As a tornado of dissent and violence spreads, everyone's life is going to change.

A startlingly theatrical look at what happens when it all kicks off, Elinor Cook's play Image of an Unknown Young Woman premiered at the Gate Theatre, London, in June 2015.

The Times
