Tony Award-winner Mary Zimmerman has spun her magic with an exotic retelling of "One Thousand and One Nights", a classic collection of Persian, Indian and Arabic folk tales. Doomed to be married to (and be slain by) a tyrannical ruler, the young maiden, Scheherazade, must spin a new enthralling story each night to postpone her fate. This piece is filled with humor, romance and music, and contains a wonderful lesson on the power of storytelling. [Contains adult themes]
