This unique stage adaptation of the ancient tales unearths their true character from the oldest Arabic manuscripts: erotic, brutal, witty, poetic and complex. Adapted by leading theatre-maker Tim Supple, from stories by Lebanese novelist Hanan al-Shaykh, the tales tell of love, marriage, power, punishment, and the endless trials of fate.


Hanan al-Shaykh is widely regarded as one of the foremost experts on Arab womanhood. Her works include Women of Sand and Myrrh, The Story of Zahra, Beirut Blues and The Locust and the Bird. Tim Supple is one of the world's leading theatre directors and creators. His widely-acclaimed works include Twelfth Night (Channel 4 film), Tales from Ovid, A Servant to Two Masters (both RSC) and a multi-lingual A Midsummer Night's Dream (Dash Arts/world tour).


Supple's wonderful instant classic of engaged story telling...a rediscovered literary masterpiece. -- Michael Coveney The Independent Ambitious does not begin to describe is impossible not to warm to these tales. They are sexy, irreverent, surprising, visually arresting. -- Sarah Crompton The Daily Telegraph Tim Supple's outstanding dramatisation...he is very much Peter Brook's successor...a fantastic tree of ever-branching stories...the topicality of this - from Arab Spring to post-riot Britain - does not need spelling out...this was quietly wonderful, world class theatre. -- Kate Bassett Independent on Sunday An extraordinary enterprise...moving and durable. -- Michael Billington The Guardian
