About this show

The Play Company presents the New York premiere of Arabian Night, by Roland Schimmelpfennig, translated from German by David Tushingham. Directed by Trip Cullman, Arabian Night is an erotic urban fantasy by one of Germany's most celebrated contemporary playwrights. This nocturnal adventure, set in an anonymous housing complex, is part fairy tale, part noir thriller and part nightmare. It tells the story of five people whose destinies become inextricably intertwined on a hot summer night. When the building's water supply mysteriously disappears, they are all drawn to the apartment of a sleeping beauty, where they meet their fate.
