Angel

Angel

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 along with ten other awards from 2016-17.


Warning - this show contains scenes of violence and sexual violence.

25 and Counting

25 and Counting

‘True friendship is to understand and to be understood’ for Fearn, Pia, Olivia and Lauren this has fallen by the wayside. Can something really be fixed if it was already broken?


'25 & Counting' is an original play, written by Florence Petrie, which explores the friendships and relationships of young people living in London. The play looks at how we interact with one another, and how other people can negatively affect our sense of self. Fundamentally asking the question: 'Where does our happiness come from?' This play contrasts naturalism with high energy physical scenes.
