Scheherazade

Scheherazade

Play by Marisha Chamberlain
Script and performance rights available from Dramatists Play Service

This often harrowing but ultimately soaring first play traces the fate of a rape victim from initial trauma to the eventual reconciliation of this shattering event into the continuum of her life.

“…a work that stimulates an audience—not just intellectually, but emotionally.” Minneapolis City Pages

“…to sustain terror, to pull the tension wire tight for 90 minutes, is something else. To do this and also explore a subject with intelligence, power, courage and compassion is really quite remarkable.” Chicago Sun-Times

“…a play that provokes discussion, thought, soul searching, even argument.” Minneapolis Star and Tribune
