Arabian Nights

Theatre Royal Wakefield welcomes the 18th Wakefield Drama Festival. This annual event showcases the work of the best amateur drama groups across the region. Seven plays in seven days presented by seven different companies; a mixture of comedy, tragedy and drama.

Shahrazad has a gift. Her gift is telling stories. She is married to King Shahrayar and is to be put to death the next morning like the young brides before her. Storytelling may be the only thing that saves her and the daughters of the kingdom. 

Her limitless imagination takes us on adventures to meet dazzling characters such as Ali Baba, Es-Sindibad the Sailor and Princess Parizade as well strange and magical allies such as talking birds and sinister thieves. 

Can Shahrazad captivate her husband with her enchanting stories and save her life?

In his clever adaptation of One Thousand and One Nights, Dominic Cooke brings the classic Eastern stories to magical, delightful life.
