About the Play:
This puppetry play tells a classic tale that is included in many versions of the One Thousand and One Nights. It is one of the most familiar of the "Arabian Nights" tales, and has been widely retold and performed in many media, especially for children.
Ali Baba, a poor woodcutter who makes his living selling wood, stumbles upon a secret cave where 40 thieves have been hiding priceless treasures. He enters the cave and decides to take some treasures for himself. Murgana, Ali Baba’s future wife, is thrilled at their newfound fortune until she accidentally reveals the secret to Ali Baba’s wealthy brother and wife. When the secret of the cave gets out, it unleashes a series of events that will change Ali Baba’s life forever.
