Arabian Nights

By Mary Zimmerman
Directed by Laura Eddy, John Keogh
Musical Director Rachel Thomas
8th – 16th May 2015

Exotic, sexy and funny – the stories of the Arabian Nights are as delicious and fragrant as Turkish Delight

Behind the minarets of Baghdad, shadowed against an inky night sky, King Shahryar discovers his wife in the arms of a slave. In a fit of rage, he kills them both on the carpets of the bed. From then on, every night he marries, loves and kills a virgin girl – so as never to be betrayed again.

But when he weds Scherherazade, she tells her king stories, the magical and exotic stories of the Arabian Nights. Stories of sex and prudishness; wealth gained and riches lost; stories of fidelity and lust; of love found and love lost; stories of mad men and angry women; of status deserved and undeserved. But what is Scherherazade’s fate? Will she live or die at the hand of her king?
