By Roland Schimmelpfennig
Translated by Melanie Dreyer
Directed by Jenny McConnell Frederick
July 1 – 30, 2006

“A slick 60-minute thriller with a chip on its urbane shoulder and a whiff of the supernatural in its nostrils.”
— The Washington City Paper

Nominated Play of the Year by six German critics in 2001, THE ARABIAN NIGHT is a sleek and sensual thriller from one of the most acclaimed new voices of the German stage. The play follows the interweaving fantasies, crossed paths and conflicting desires of five individuals trapped in an apartment tower on the hottest night in history.
