Angel is the legendary story of Rehana.
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 100 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.
