A tapestry of fantastical tales

Interweaving stories about the sexestheir conflicts, their love, their tricksthis theater piece unearths timely truths from ancient Islamic tales we thought we knew. Target Margin brings five diverse actors together to retell stories from One Thousand and One Nightsa rich collection of folktales from across Silk Road cultures: Turkey, Persia, India, and moreas they morph between character and creature. “We are never allowed to forget that the multicolored narratives in this tantalizing production have constantly been redyed by the who, where and when of their telling during many centuries” (The New York Times); Pay No Attention to the Girl leans smartly into the sophisticated complexity of these fantastical stories.
