    "Shakespeare (1564-1616) meets Scheherazade" or "The night I met Shakespeare". It is a play that explores the art of play-writing as opposed to the art of storytelling. Two literature icons meet and explore each other’s work. A journey that takes us from Shahriar to Macbeth to the One Thousand and One stories to our world today.
