Presented by Perth Waldorf School

A thirty two-member cast physically embody Scheherazade's tales of love, lust, comedy, and dreams.  Scheherezade postpones her execution by telling the king intricate stories, stopping tantalizingly short of their conclusions just before dawn. 

This adaptation offers a wonderful blend of the lesser-known tales from One Thousand and One Nights, with the recurring theme of how the magic of storytelling holds the power to transform and heal us all. Adapted for the stage by Mary Zimmerman and including some original dramatisations, created by the cast, this celebration of the joy and wonderment of storytelling is an event not to be missed!

"Let it be one thousand nights and one night before you grow weary of me."  - Scheherazade,
