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 was nominated for an Off West End Award - Best Production for Young People. Age guide: 6 +Performers Ritu Arya, Danusia Samal, Carl Patrick, Thomas Padden.
