Angel - the legendary story of Rehana

One woman’s brave fight against the biggest threat to her town and its people.



In 2014 Kurdish families were fleeing Kobane to avoid the inevitable ISIS onslaught; Rehana stayed to fight and defend her town; as a sniper, she allegedly killed more than a hundred ISIS fighters.


When her story came out, she became an internet sensation and a symbol of resistance against Islamic State and dubbed the ‘Angel of Kobane’. Now, this legendary story comes to the stage in Henry Naylor’s award-winning play Angel.


This is a hard-hitting exploration of Angel’s story, during a time when the themes are very much still relevant and present in modern society.


Angel is suitable for those aged 14+, the play contains strong language and distressing scenes that some may find uncomfortable.
