SYNOPSIS: ANGEL & ECHOES is inspired by the story of a modern legend: a female sniper who struck fear in the hearts of jihadists and held ISIS in check for over a year in war torn Syria.

ANGEL is a one-woman show inspired by the story of a modern legend; a female sniper, "the Angel of Kobani," who held ISIS in check for over a year in war-torn Syria. Rehana is a young law student who joins the resistance when the town of Kobani is besieged, and quickly discovers that she had a talent for killing.

ECHOES tells the parallel stories of two women born 175 years apart. One is a Victorian pioneer woman, the other an Islamist schoolgirl. The former wants to build an Empire, the latter a Caliphate. Both women are idealists and intelligent adventurers who travel East to impose their views on unwilling peoples.
