This magical play for children aged between six and 11-years-old is about exploring your culture and knowing where you come from so you know where you’re going.

Nomi wants a story of her own. She lives in London but dreams about Baghdad, where her parents are from. Why can’t London be like her family’s fantastical stories of flying carpets and shooting stars?

One night over dinner, a genie bursts out of a mango pickle jar and Nomi is swept away on a magic carpet to Baghdad. Characters from the Arabian Nights come to life as Nomi meets Sinbad and swims the Tigris in a quest to discover her story. But when her three wishes run out, how will Nomi get back home?

Please note, children younger than 6-years-old will only be admitted to performances marked All Ages Welcome. Visit the Polka Theatre’s website for details.
