Warwick Academy’s “Scheherazade” Production

February 9, 2013

Earlier this week Warwick Academy’s Upper Primary department put on a production of Scheherazade by Nick Perrin. The story covers two children poking around a junk shop looking for a birthday present for their Grandfather.

They discover a heavy dust-covered book called ‘Tales of the Arabian Nights’. A mysterious character, whom the children take to be the shopkeeper, suddenly appears then and tells the children about the book before reading them the story of Princess Scheherazade. The play tells four of the tales and the audiences gets to find out what happens to Scheherazade and her sister Dinazade.
