Now Playing Onstage in Casper - Week of 1/26/2014 ALADDIN AND TALES FROM THE ARABIAN NIGHTS
Artcore
1/30-1/30/2014
One of the most interesting parts of Tales from the Arabian Nights is its storytelling structure. The play begins by introducing Scheherazade and the Sultan and presenting both a problem-the Sultan's wife has been unfaithful to him, and he is incredibly angry-and a dubious solution-Scheherazade will tell the Sultan enlightening and miraculous tales in hopes that he will let go of his anger. Scheherazade's plan works, and the Sultan is transformed and happy once again. This is a story in itself; it has a beginning, middle, and end. However, it is a frame story surrounding multiple other stories. The tales Scheherazade tells the Sultan every night each have their own beginnings, middles, and ends. These various tales create layers of plot points and character development, leaving it to the audience to travel among them and eventually return to reality. Depending where we are in the play, that reality can change too. At the end of each of Scheherazade's tales, the audience returns to the world of Scheherazade and her grieving Sultan. At the end of the play itself, audience members return to their own world. Enchantment adds another layer to this structure, blurring the line between what is real and what is not, by allowing the character of the Sultan to play the hero in each story Scheherazade tells.
