"​Terrific play - really compelling and powerful. And beautifully performed."
Ben Musgrave,

SHAHRAZAD

Repetition. Chores. Work. Dinner. Waltz.

Playing it safe. Raised voices. Sharp noises.

 

Trapped behind high walls and closed doors, each day a woman must find tricks and tactics to divert her husband’s growing anger. She has a plan to save herself and the women who follow her. She must weave an imaginary world to escape reality. They must escape.

Following an exciting research and development period, we worked with award-winning writer Tahmima Anam to develop a new script, and present a live reading of the work-in-progress
Shahrazad live on Zoom and Facebook on the 29th October 2020.
