Wojtek Faruga and Magda Fertacz's project inspired by One Thousand and One Nights, and the life and work of Oriana Fallaci. We will take a look at the 1979 Islamic revolution in Iran through the lens of these old Persian tales. The play is inspired by Oriana Fallaci's visit to Tehran as a reporter to interview Ayatollah Khomeini.

Fallaci only spent a few nights in Tehran, but one was special – when her safety was at risk after she had dared to unveil her hair in the presence of the charismatic leader. Like a modern-day Scheherazade, Fallaci will fight for her right to live through the power of her story.
