Directed by Eden Hildebrand

Elinor Cook's Image of an Unknown Young Woman is a play about the power of the visual image to focus and incite protest in a country where the authorities will do anything to suppress it. 

The play's action takes place in an unnamed country where the people are rising up against a brutal regime. A young woman in a yellow dress has been shot by the police, and when a video of the shooting goes viral, a revolution begins to stir. Ali and Leyla begin to panic – they uploaded the footage, and soon the authorities are after them. Across town, Yasmin is desperate to know if her missing mother is still alive. 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.
