Douglas Rintoul brings his family adaptation of 1001 Nights back to the Unicorn Theatre following its successful run in 2013.

Based on Arabian Nights, the production transports the narrative to modern day England where a young girl is torn between her childhood in the East and her new home in the UK.

Using everyday objects, Shahrazad fashions saucepans into crowns, old pipes into enchanted telescopes and a mop into a magic carpet to take audiences on a fantastical and imagined world of kings, viziers, and jinns.
