Following the success of their adaptation of the family favourite - Wind in the Willows - The Library Theatre Company will be presenting Dominic Cooke’s adaptation of Arabian Nights as its Christmas 2012 production at The Lowry in Salford.

The Quays Theatre at The Lowry will be specially converted to an in-the-round space for the production which is directed by Amy Leach. Leach is best known as the director of the Royal Exchange Theatre's Dr Korczak’s Example, which won the Best Studio Production Award at the 2008 Manchester Evening News Theatre Awards.

“My mum used to bring me to see shows at the Library Theatre often when I was younger,” says Amy, “so I’m over the moon to be working for the Library now.”

The piece is adapted from the world-famous folk tales by Dominic Cooke, who is the Artistic Director at the Royal Court Theatre in London.

The Library Theatre production of Arabian Nights is at the Lowry from 30 November 2012 - 12 January, 201.3
