About The Show
For ages 7-11 and their families
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 London, 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 genies.
Written by the Queen’s artistic director Douglas Rintoul, this compelling, funny and totally absorbing play has wowed audiences across the UK and now comes to the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch.
