Next Stage Festival: Scheherazade
Every night, the King marries a virgin. Every morning, he chops off her head. The only person who can stop him is Scheherazade: a brave young woman with a crazy plan.
With idiosyncratic wit and offbeat humour, Fringe favourites Nobody’s Business Theatre explore an anachronistic world of fantastic opulence, daily Royal Weddings, and terrible secrets. Inspired by the famous storyteller from 1001 Nights, this bold new play is part epic fable, part darkly erotic satire.
