Arabian Nights by Dominic Cooke

The Library Theatre Company present

Long, long ago in a faraway land there lived a clever young girl called Shahrazad. And there was nothing she liked better than to read stories…

Longing to free her town and its vengeful king from the dark demons that haunt them, Shahrazad brings to life the magical stories of One Thousand and One Nights. Her strange and wonderful tales take us to enchanted caves, to meet secret sorceresses, singing trees, flying men and wise talking birds. But can the power of the stories break the terrible curse?

Adapted from the world famous folk tales this production of Arabian Nights is a visually stunning production presented “in the round” with fabulous costumes and set pieces – an imaginative delight for Christmas that will keep both children and adults spellbound.
