1001 Nights

A Transport / Unicorn Production

TOMORROW NIGHT I SHALL TELL YOU SOMETHING STRANGER AND EVEN MORE AMAZING...

  • Devised and directed by Douglas Rintoul
  • Designed by James Perkins
  • Lighting design by Matthew Haskins
  • Cast includes: Samantha Béart, Keshini Misha, Krystian Godlewski

1001 Nights collects together some of the greatest folk tales ever told. Here they are re-imagined by Shahrazad – a lively young girl who, torn between her old home in the East and her new life in England, re-tells the extraordinary stories of her childhood to her new-found friend, who understands not a single word she says…

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.

This compelling, funny and totally absorbing play wowed audiences at the Unicorn in 2013 and now returns for just two weeks as part of a UK tour.


Nominated for an Off West End Award – Best Production for Young People.
