1001 Arabian Nights
2nd September 2012
She would entertain the king... or die!
This September, ImproMafia retells the oldest improvised story of all;
1001 Arabian Nights.
In Ancient Eranshar, the all-powerful King Shahryar swears that he would kill all of his wives after their wedding night so that they can never betray him.
To tame the mad King, the beautiful young Scheherezade volunteers to marry him. She must captivate him with multi-layered stories so elaborate that each night he will break his vow to kill her. Can you, the audience, save Scheherezade with your suggestions for tales that will enchant the murderous King?
