Full of mischief, valor, ribaldry, and romance, Arabian Nights has enthralled readers for centuries. These are the tales that saved the life of Shahrazad, whose husband, the king, executed each of his wives after a single night of marriage. Beginning an enchanting story each evening, Shahrazad always withheld the ending: A thousand and one nights later, her life was spared forever.
This is a classic children’s play that Homestead has taken on and made their own. Setting a frame story around the old Persian story, the tale starts in the 1950’s on a playground taken over by the neighborhood kids. Everyone is playing with their friends except one girl. She is enthralled in a book… Alf Layla wa-Layla, or the Tales of a Thousand and One Nights, her laughter and wonder intrigues the others and soon everyone is gathered around her as she begins her tale.
