Adapted from The Book of the Thousand Nights and One Night In the land ruled by the brutal King Shahryar, every unmarried girl fears for her life. When young Scheherazade is summoned to marry the King, she must use the power of her captivating story-telling to survive. Night after night, the new Queen weaves tales of seduction and suspense, from a madman on the hunt for Perfect Love, to a tortoise curing a King with soup, a Jester with marriage trouble and many more. How long can Scheherazade's imagination save her? The Arabian Nights is The Tricycle's first family festive show.
