Shifting Sands Theatre create a show that is both hilarious and moving in a refreshing and imaginative adaptation of the classic tales.

The Sultan summons a new wife every night. Every morning she is killed. 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?

Hilarious and moving, a refreshing and imaginative adaptation of the classic tales, Arabian Nights...and Days is a feast of physical comedy, clowning and storytelling theatre with a strong emotional punch. Scherazade reminds us of what we have lost but also of what we can still find. In a dark world ruled by hatred, she tells stories of hope.
