A startlingly theatrical look at what happens when it all kicks off ...

She's a young woman in a yellow dress

And she's been shot by the police

As a video goes viral, a revolution begins to stir

Ali and Leyla are panicking they uploaded the footage and now the authorities are after them

Across town, Yasmin is desperate to know if her missing mother is still alive

And halfway around the world, a woman in London wants to help

As a tornado of dissent and violence spreads, everyone's life is going to change

" ... brimming with ideas a fascinating, troubling mirror image of us" ~ Time Out

" ... angry, intelligent and savagely funny" ~ The Times

" ... grabs its audience by the throat and doesn't let go highly emotive, potently theatrical, shot through a with a dark wit" ~ The Stage

" ... punchy and tense it crackles with anger, emotion and razor-sharp social commentary" ~ A Younger Theatre
