Music Drama

‘The Bedseller’s Tale’

‘The Bedseller’s Tale’ is an extended music drama in the tradition of the Arabian Nights. It was developed at the National Theatre Studio and performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival by Classworks Theatre Company.

‘Interior sprung, firm edge or pocketed springs – ‘choosing a bed is like choosing a wife’. Humorous, erotic, contemplative, dark. Exotic fantasies. Worlds within worlds. Poet Caroline and Smith and composer Jon Nicholls collaborate in CCT’s powerful ensemble production.’
