Arabian Nights

by Hammer and Tongs Theatre

Tuesday 26 November 2013 - Saturday 14 December 2013

A rip-roaring comedy! Hammer and Tongs Theatre tramples raucously through the far-flung fables of the Arabian Nights, thwarting the murderous intentions of a jilted king...

Kings, princesses, the odd genie, more talking animals than you can shake a stick at and a flying horse all find their way into this madcap physical comedy, played out by a rambunctious ensemble and accompanied by live music.

Prepare to be bombarded by imagination and battered with fantasy!

Praise for Arabian Nights at the Camden Fringe 2012:

Snipe London

“The performance was great!...a clever and witty interpretation”
**** Remote Goat

“A fantastic night out!”
Camden Fringe Voyeur

Remote Goat

The cast took us through a magical roller-coaster of dancing, singing and physical theatre that blew my mind. I loved every minute!

In-Spirels Magazine

The atmosphere is something of a magical cavern, very fitting for the mystical Arabian Nights
