Leicester Drama Society

Main House


Betrayed by an unfaithful wife, the Sultan Shahryar is brokenhearted, but vows his revenge by taking a new bride each day only to kill her the next morning. Scheherazade, daughter of the king’s advisor, offers to marry Shahryar, knowing that the night could be her last. On her wedding night, she tells the Sultan a story that keeps her alive until the following day. Day after day she captivates the Sultan with her wondrous tales, keeping herself alive and showing the Sultan the error of his ways. 

Hear Scheherezade tell some of her enchanting tales, including ‘The Leg of Mutton’, ‘Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves’, ‘The Fisherman and the Brass Bottle’ and ‘The True Heart’, in this spectacular new adaptation of ‘The Arabian Nights’.
