Mixing the labyrinthine wordplay of Jorge Louis Borges with the ideas of Edward Said and the slapstick comedy of Monty Python, 1001 hyperlinks Scheherazade's tales to contemporary Manhattan. Time blurs and reality is fractured and reconstructed in a world inhabited by characters whose identity shifts unpredictably and deliriously. With rollicking storytelling, a touch of magic realism, and even a little trip-hop music, 1001 simultaneously defaces and energizes A Thousand and One Arabian Nights to guide us through a tour of the dizzyingly precarious world of the 21st century. The cast of 1001 includes Mia Barron (The Coast of Utopia), Drew Cortese (NYSFís As You Like It), Roxanna Hope (Frost/Nixon), Jonathan Hova (Sixteen Wounded; The Tale of the Allergistís Wife), Matt Rauch (Roundaboutís Prelude to a Kiss), and John Livingstone Rolle (The Unmentionables at Woolly Mammoth).
