Synopsis

The Arabian Nights - A Play

The Arabian Nights - A Play $17.99

Mary Zimmerman

Published by Northwestern Publishing

Large Mixed Cast
A twelve-member cast enacts Scheherazade's tales of love, lust, comedy, and dreams. Scheherazade's cliffhanger stories prevent her husband, the cruel ruler Shahryar, from murdering her, and - after 1001 nights - Shahryar is cured of his madness, and Scheherazade returns to her family

This adaptation offers a wonderful blend of the lesser-known tales from Arabian Nights with the recurring theme of how the magic of storytelling holds the power to change people

The final scene brings the audience back to a modern day Baghdad with the wail of air raid sirens threatening the rich culture and history that are embodied by these tales

Based on Powys Mather's translation of The Book of the Thousand and One Night

"A feast for the eyes and ears" ~ Chicago Magazine
