A king betrayed by his wife, decides to reap his revenge on woman-kind by bedding, then slaughtering, one virgin every night... but then he meets Sheharazade.
Sheharazade, the storyteller who saved her own life together with the lives of her children by telling stories for 1001 nights, is one of the great cultural creations of the Arab world. Stories nestle within stories, with demons, errant spouses, thieves, fools and comedians all jostling for attention
Combining grown-up folk and fairytale, the fabulous storyteller, Chirine El Ansary, draws us into the most intriguing and deliciously seductive episodes of The Nights - and the deepest passions and desires of men and women.
