Story Pocket Theatre presents Arabian Nights

Auditorium
Sold out
Part of STORYSTOCK 2016

Don’t miss your chance to see the Children’s Choice Award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014.

Meet Sheherazade, the greatest storyteller of them all. She has a feast of adventures and fantasies to tell involving genies, villains, heroes and princesses. But she must keep her husband the king entertained with her stories to save her own life and the lives of all the maidens of the land.

Will Ali Baba’s encounter with the 40 thieves do the trick? Can the story of Aladdin and his lamp help her live to tell more tales such as the Little Beggar or the Fisherman and the Genie? Find out in Story Pocket Theatre’s version of Arabian Nights, a show full of adventure and magic and wonder!

Winner of the Primary Times Children’s Choice Award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe!

‘BRILLIANT!! My three grandchildren 8, 7 and 4 years were totally entranced (and us grandparents). The very best show (by far) that we have taken them to. All three actors are obviously extremely talented. Long may they continue!!!’ audience review
