THE ARABIAN NIGHTS

September 19 - October 19, 1997

The Steppenwolf Studio Theatre

Adapted and Directed by Mary Zimmerman

The tale of a bride who, through the power of storytelling, saves her own life and brings her husband, the murderous king, back into the fold of humanity. Set in the cities of Cairo, Basra and Baghdad– “City of Peace and Poets”– these stories open the door to a lost world of wisdom, hope and faith in the divine beauty of the heart. The Arabian Nights is a testament to the power of abundant imagination and the literally life-giving value of a good story.

Featuring Ensemble Members David Catlin, Thomas J. Cox, Lawrence E. DiStasi, Christine Mary Dunford, Laura Eason, Doug Hara, David Kersnar, Philip Rayburn Smith, Heidi Stillman, and Andrew White, with Anjali Bhimani, Mark Brodie, Jane C. Cho, Adam Dannheisser, and Naama Potok.
