Armadillo – little armoured one. [Spanish]

A teenage girl disappears from a small town in America where fifteen years earlier, another teenage girl was kidnapped. Now a woman, she watches the news. She reaches for her gun. She holds it close.

From writer Sarah Kosar (Mumburger, Old Red Lion, Old Vic 12, 2018) and director Sara Joyce (★★★★★ Dust, Trafalgar Studios, Old Vic 12, 2018) comes a show about the dangerous ways we make ourselves feel safe.

With a cast including Michelle Fox (A Very English Scandal, BBC1; Translations, National Theatre), Mark Quartley (Vera, ITV; Another Country, Trafalgar Studios) and Nima Taleghani (Romeo and Juliet, RSC; Hatton Garden, ITV).

Running time 90 minutes (no interval); there is a latecomers’ point 8 minutes into the show | Suitable for ages 14+ | This performance contains reference to violence, sexual assault and child abuse; flashing lights and strobe; gunshots | Production photography by Maurizio Martorana

There is a captioned performance at 8pm on 15 June.
