The Arabian Nights

written by Mary Zimmerman

Adapted from THE BOOK OF THE THOUSAND NIGHTS AND ONE NIGHT

Constellation Theatre Company caught the attention of the DC theatre scene in 2007 with its production of The Arabian Nights.  10 years later, the company is delighted to present a brand new production of this legendary tale.   

For 1,001 nights Scheherazade uses the power of storytelling to save her own life.  Each evening she captivates King Shahryar by spinning tales of love, lust, sorrow and revenge.  Comic stories like “The Jester’s Wife” alternate with mysterious dreams and moving stories of love and sacrifice.  This collection of Middle Eastern stories is a testament to how the magic of storytelling can transform people, illuminate their minds and redeem their souls.  Featuring live music by Tom Teasley.

Recommended for ages 16+.
Run Time: 2:20, plus one intermission
