About this event

A returning Jihadi bride, an Islamophobic journalist & an antique dealer with a violent past all collide in a dark, timely tale. Three-time Fringe First Winner Henry Naylor is 'The Fringe's unofficial star-writer-in-residence' (The Spectator), with his plays having won, or been nominated for, over 35 global awards.

★★★★ "Naylor has won widespread recognition on the Fringe for his well-justified obsession with the catastrophic conflicts that have spread across Iraq, Syria, Yemen and beyond" The Scotsman.

★★★★ "A riveting exploration of identity, idealism and heroism" The Sunday Times.

★★★★★ "Breathtaking and powerful, Henry Naylor's play is sharp, funny and poignant - a must see" Ed Fest Mag.
