A FAMILY SHOW FOR AGES 6+

TOMORROW NIGHT I SHALL TELL YOU SOMETHING STRANGER AND EVEN MORE AMAZING...

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 Britain, 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 and now returns for a UK tour.

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

What the public say

We look out 6 year old daughter to see this and she gave it two big thumbs up. (That means a lot in our house!) We really enjoyed the laughs and emotion that spilled out throughout the performance. Thoughtfully written and very well acted - we wish we could watch again and again. Thank you so much for making the show accessible to us.
