Shifting Sands Theatre Company presents:
Arabian Nights… and Days!

The Sultan summons a new wife every night. Every morning he has her killed. All are powerless before him. As the number of his victims mounts, the fear grows. Who will be next? Then Scherazade, the daughter of the High Counsellor, demands to be his next wife. All are dumbfounded. Has she lost her senses? She enters the lion’s den armed only with her wits and her courage. Will the brutal Sultan strangle her like the others or can she save herself – and stop the killing???

A vivid interpretation of the stories spun by Scherazade, Arabian Nights …and Days! is a feast of physical comedy, clowning and storytelling theatre. Come on a magic carpet ride to a universe full of laughter, danger and wonder! See how to trick an evil genie, mix magic potions, open the door that hides the secrets of the world, teach a parrot to become your personal spy … and much, much more!
