Illyria – Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves

Tuesday 13 August, 7pm

When Young Ali Baba stumbles across an enchanted cave full of gold and jewels, of course he takes some home to show his wife.  But what will he do when the Robber King comes looking for the missing treasure – with an army of 40 angry thieves? And how will he keep his family safe?

This latest fast-paced, comedic treat is brought to you by Illyria, winner of 4 international ‘Best Performance’ awards. Adapted from Arabian Nights and packed with cliffhangers, larger-than-life characters and laughs galore, it is the perfect summer fun for thieves and vagabonds aged 5yrs and over!
