  • by Jason Grote
  • directed by Carlos Murillo
  • A wild time-bending re-imagining of The Arabian Nights, Jason Grote's 1001 hyperlinks Scheherazade's tales to contemporary Manhattan, in an examination of East and West in the post-9/11 world.  Part Monty Python, part magical realist political fantasia, this Chicago premiere by a visionary new playwright takes the audience on a rollicking journey through the precarious world of the 21st Century. For mature audiences.
