Tales from the Arab world
Told by Daniel Morden


A blacksmith batters himself with his hammer. 
A fisherman throws back the fishes he catches. 
A blind man begs passers by to strike him. 
A prince in a never-ending sleep.

Shot through with powerful, mysterious images, NEWS OF THE STRANGE is an evening of stories from the Arab world, some moving, some shocking, some hilarious.
