Arabian Nights

By Mary Zimmerman

Directed by Jeanne Leep

Mary Zimmermanís fresh take on these ancient tales creates a magical experience where Scheherazadeís stories, told to save her life from the cruel and tortured ruler, Shahryar, weave an enchanted carpet ride that will both delight the senses and provoke the mind. For one thousand and one nights, Shahryar delays Scheherazadeís murder as he eagerly awaits her next tale of love, lust, hilarity, or sorrow. This beautiful and highly physical adaptation makes for a powerful version of both familiar and lesser known tales from the cannon of this classic text.
