Scheherazade ()

Produced by

Nobody’s Business Theatre

Presented by

Next Stage Theatre Festival

Playwright: Johnnie Walker
Director: Morgan Norwich


Factory Studio Theatre


January 9th, 2014 – January 19th, 2014


Every night, the King marries a virgin. Every morning, he chops off her head. The only person who can stop him is Scheherazade: a brave young woman with a crazy plan.

With idiosyncratic wit and offbeat humour,  Nobody’s Business Theatre explore an anachronistic world of fantastic opulence, daily Royal Weddings, and terrible secrets. Inspired by the famous storyteller from 1001 Nights, this bold new play is part epic fable, part darkly erotic  satire. (
