The Arabian Nights at London’s Tricycle Theatre

Date Posted: 04/11/2012

London’s Tricycle Theatre presents its first festive show this winter season, as Mary Zimmerman’s adaptation of The Arabian Nights plays from 30th November to 12th January.

Promising magical moments and superb storytelling, this new version of The Arabian Nights adapted from The Book Of The Thousand Nights and One Night, will be humorous, dark and engaging.


In Baghdad, a young woman starts a revolution through the power of storytelling.

For three years, King Shahryar has taken bloody vengeance against the women of his city, marrying a new bride every night and killing her in the morning.

Scheherazade is determined to stop the bloodshed using the only weapons she has - her wit and imagination. Night after night, the King’s newest bride weaves tales of seduction, silliness and suspense. How long can her stories save her?
