Summary

Arabian Nights

It is the nuptial night of the new queen, Shahrazad. As with all those that have come before her, after becoming the bride of King Shahrayar she will be put to death at the rise of the sun. But she has a way out from her untimely death for she has an extraordinary talent – a talent for tantalising storytelling.

With her mischievous imagination, the young queen spins a dazzling array of tales and characters. On her side are Ali Baba, Es-Sindibad the Sailor and Princess Parizade – adventurers in strange and magical worlds populated by giant beasts, talking birds, devilish ghouls and crafty thieves. But will her silver-tongued stories be enough to enchant her husband and save her life.

A simple and delightfully inventive re-telling of the stories from the Arabian Nights (Royal Shakespeare Company version).

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
