Arabian Nights hit London

An award-winning children's show hits London and its audiences will be transported to a wonderful world of mysterious marvels and tales retold with music, puppetry and theatrical magic.

Story Pocket Theatre's adaptation of Arabian Nights features Sheherazade, a Persian queen who has a feast of adventures and fantasies to tell which include genies, villains, heroes and princesses. 

She has to keep the King entertained with her stories to save her life. 

The fast-paced comedy tackles love, mayhem and storytelling and has received four and five-star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Fetival in 2014 and won the Primary Times children’s choice award.

Arabian Nights is adapted by Adam Forde; co-directed by Julia Black and Adam Forde; music by David Perkins; costume and set design by Francine Huin-Wah. The production is presented in association with Guildford's Yvonne Arnaud Theatre. The cast of three comprises Yasmin Goodwin, William Forde and Luke Pitman.
