Torch Theatre Company takes playwright Henry Naylor’s powerful and poignant Angel on tour this autumn, visiting Lancaster’s Dukes new theatre space, Moor Space September 29.

It is the story of Rehana and one woman’s fight against the biggest threat to her town and its people.

In 2014, Kurdish families were fleeing Kobane to avoid ISIS onslaught; Rehana stayed as a sniper, and allegedly killed more than 100 ISIS fighters.

It contains strong language and scenes some may find uncomfortable. Recommended for 14 and above.
