    Details

    Devised and directed by Douglas Rintoul

    1001 Nights collects together some of the greatest folk tales ever told. Here they are re-imagined by Shahrazad - a lively young girl who, torn between her old home in the East and her new life in England, re-tells the extraordinary stories of her childhood to her new-found friend, who understands not a single word she says...

    Using the things she finds around her, Shahrazad fashions saucepans into crowns, old pipes into enchanted telescopes and a mop into a magic carpet to transport us to a fantastical and imagined world of kings, viziers, and jinns.

    This compelling, funny and totally absorbing play wowed audiences at the Unicorn in 2013.

    Nominated for an Off West End Award - Best Production for Young People

    'An Utter Delight’ ★★★★ Telegraph
