1001 by Jason Grote



A seductive fever-dream of a play, Grote’s kaleidoscopic reinvention of the “Arabian Nights” proves to be a timely tale as America reflects on the 10 year anniversary of 9/11. 1001’s rich fantasia conjures a storybook world that dissolves, at a moment’s notice, into an apocalyptic, 21st-century landscape. Stories like “Sinbad the Sailor” and “Aladdin and His Magic Lamp” come to life, making 1001 an explosive, brilliant work about America, the power of story, and identity.
