“My story is of such marvel that if it were written with a needle on the corner of an eye, it would yet serve as a lesson to those who seek wisdom.”
Trapped within four walls, Shahrazad has a ploy to save her own life and the lives of other women – she will weave an imaginary world to escape her reality.
Our R&D process has been informed by interviews and conversations with staff and service users of domestic abuse charities. Devised scenes and scripted extracts have been influenced by the age-old tale of One Thousand and One Nights and real-life accounts of present-day Shahrazads.
