1001 Nights brings together some of the greatest folk tales ever told, re-imagined by Shahrazad, a lively young girl torn between her old home in the East and her new life in London.

Written by Douglas Rintoul, 1001 Nights sees Shahrazad retell 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, transporting audiences to a fantastical and imagined world of kings, viziers and genies.

1001 Nights previously entertained audiences at the Unicorn Theatre. The show is recommended for children aged seven to 11-years-old.

There is a relaxed performance of 1001 Nights on Wednesday 30 March at 14:00.
