Another Tobacco Factory Theatres and Travelling Light co-production.
Once there lived two brothers. For the good-hearted Ali Baba, a poverty stricken wood-cutter, life is all toil and hardship. But for the proud Kasim, married to a Merchant’s daughter and as rich as trees are rich in leaves, life is easy. The two brothers are alike as chalk and cheese.
Then, quite by accident, Ali discovers a secret and from then on life for the two brothers will never be the same again… Money, contract killers, heroic servants and disobedient donkeys take this a long way from a tale of everyday family life.
In a brand new re-telling of this much-loved folk tale the creative team behind The Ugly Duckling bring their imagination and inimitable style to depict a unique and magical world that is rooted in the cultures of ancient Persia, India and Arabia.
