MARE RIDER at Arcola Theatre

Arcola Theatre presents MARE RIDER

Elka is the sinister Mare Rider, in myth she haunts new mothers and rides bareback through mountains and across the plains of Anatolia.

Selma is about to give birth at Homerton Hospital in Hackney, Elka takes her on a fantastical journey, probing the spaces between Selma's nightmarish visions and the reality of those around her.

Mare Rider is the latest play by Leyla Nazli.

Leyla was one of the 'Royal Court Fifty' writers chosen to celebrate the theatre's 50th anniversary year and where her first play Silver Birch House had its debut reading before premiering at Arcola in 2007.
