WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Henry Naylor returns to this year's Brits Off Broadway festival with a double bill of provocative theater. Angel is inspired by the story of a modern legend: a female sniper who struck fear into the hearts of jihadists and held ISIS in check for over a year in war-torn Syria. Echoes, back by popular demand after its too-short, sellout run last year, tells the parallel stories of two women born 175 years apart: a Victorian pioneer who wants to build an empire and a present-day Islamic schoolgirl who wants to build a caliphate. These two staggering stories continue to haunt audiences long after the curtain goes down.
