Play Title:Lifeblood
Runtime:11-30 minutes
Synopsis:This one-act drama opens as Scheherazade, the young heroine of The Tales of the Thousand and One Nights, narrates a story for King Shahrayar. She has been the king’s consort for almost one year, and is nine months’ pregnant as the play opens. Scheherazade tries to continue her story to entertain the king, but the contractions overtake her, and Dinarzade conducts her to a birthing bed. King Shahrayar’s tenderness, in the face of Scheherazade’s struggles, offers hope that he will bestow upon her, and upon all the women of his kingdom, a permanent pardon from death.
