Using the things she finds around her, Shahrazad fashions saucepans into crowns, old pipes into enchanted telescopes and a mop into a magic carpet to transport us to a fantastical and imagined world of kings, viziers, and jinns.
'...harnessing its audience’s imagination in a continuous game of let’s-pretend and holding everyone, young and old alike, quite spellbound. An utter delight.' ★★★★
'1001 Nights is an enjoyable piece which celebrates, among other things, the power of stories, family and friendship.' 4 STARS WhatsOnStage.com

Stories We Tell Ourselves
By Jane Barnwell
A film installation will take place in the Unicorn foyer during the run of 1001 Nights (from 7 Jun onwards). Stories We Tell Ourselves is a playful interpretation of the familiar stories we know and love with some unexpected twists, exploring the creation of identity through the stories we tell our children.
