Arabian Nights

Toby Hulse, playwright


73 pgs. 24 characters (originally performed with 6 actors)

Originally produced by The Watermill, UK, in 2012

Run Time: 1 hour, 45 minutes

Audience Recommendation: 6+


Long, long ago, in a faraway land of mystery and wonder, a cruel king listens as a beautiful princess tells him stories – magical tales of princes and fishermen, flying horses and fabulous treasures, talking animals and powerful genies. Will she find the one story that will save them both, and fill his heart with joy and love? Or is she doomed to die, and the king to remain forever alone? Full of mystical creatures, magical transformations and enchanting music, expect a show crammed full with delights and surprises drawn from one of the greatest collection of stories ever.

“What really makes this production so much fun is Toby Hulse’s pitch perfect adaptation… The clever yet simple framing device allows the characters to step outside of the stories and comment on the action to hilarious effect.” –The Public Reviews, UK

“The Arabian Nights is pure magic.” –British Theatre Guide
