Tales from the Arabian Nights

Tales from the Arabian Nights (EPUB ebook – 1st edition)

By Abela, Donna

In this delightful adaptation of the classic tales, Donna Abela brings centuries-old tradition into the modern era with a play that is timeless yet utterly contemporary. Young courtier Shahrazad poses as a 'Smuggle' (a refugee) about to be executed by the despotic King Shahrayar.... To save her life, she tells the king a story he can't resist. It's a tale of magic and transformation, demons and lovers, adventure and terror. Delaying her fate by one more night each time, Shahrazad weaves the story into another and then another until turn by turn she finds a way into the king's heart. His defences are breached and the results offer fresh hope for the whole kingdom. Abela has created an imaginative and playful piece of theatre for young people that poses many questions and longer discussions. The play was shortlisted for the NSW Premier's Literary Awards.
