Tales of Arabian Nights by Donna Abela. Directed by Carole Patullo.

Young courtier Shahrazad poses as a ‘Smuggle’ (a refugee) about to be executed by the despotic King Shahrayar. To save her life, she tells the king a story he can’t resist. It’s a tale of magic and transformation, demons and lovers, adventure and terror. Delaying her fate by one more night each time, Shahrazad weaves the story into another, and then another until turn by turn she finds a way into the king’s heart. His defences are breached and the results offer fresh hope for the whole kingdom.

The performance by the Dreamhouse 2015 ensemble was held at the Southern Peninsula Arts Centre.
