Overview


Synopsis

The Arabian Nights is a play based on the Book of the Thousand Nights and One Night, a collection of West and South Asian stories and folk tales. The play ties ancient Baghdad into the current Middle East. It tells the story of a King who has been married many times, and always murders his new bride on their wedding night. When he marries the beautiful Scheherezade, however, she delays her inevitable demise, and, over time, melts the King’s heart with her stories.
