WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Collaboraction kicks off its 15th anniversary season with the Chicago premiere of 1001, a provocative, funny and fast-paced post-modern retelling of "The Arabian Nights" written by critically acclaimed New York-based playwright Jason Grote and directed by Seth Bockley. Sexy and surreal, 1001 is a theatrical mash-up that mixes Middle East politics with a modern tale of young love, asking the question "Can passion conquer history?" A six-actor ensemble plays a dizzying variety of roles, including the fabled princess Scheherezade, a Palestinian businessman, Sindbad the sailor, an American Jew named Alan, Gustave Flaubert, a princess with a lisp and even Osama Bin Laden. Featuring Collaboraction's signature blend of modern media and visceral storytelling, this moving and hilarious intimate production promises to take audiences on a theatrical journey into uncharted territory.
