The Arabian Nights
Genre: Family Show
Playwright: Mary Zimmerman
Author: Adapted from The Book of the Thousand Nights and One Night
“In our heads, my lord, we do contain all the images of the universe.”
In Baghdad, a young woman starts a revolution through the power of storytelling.
For three years, King Shahryar has taken bloody vengeance against the women of his city, marrying a new bride every night and killing her in the morning.
Scheherezade is determined to stop the bloodshed using the only weapons she has – her wit and imagination. Night after night, the King’s newest bride weaves tales of seduction, silliness and suspense. How long can her stories save her?
A punky, modern reimagining of ancient tales and the revolutionary power of storytelling.
Suitable for ages 10+
Seating is unreserved but a suitable area with a good view of the captions and stage will be allocated on the day.
