REVIEWS

AUDIENCE REACTIONS;

My kids are LOVING Sheherazade. It’s perfect for them because the language is elevated and they feel like they are removed from who they are and where they are, and they love the complexity of the stories. It’s fantastic.

Drama Dept. R H King Academy, Scarborough, Ontario

This is a brilliant resource for kids in secondary schools. It’s not “young” so they feel they are doing adult material, but there are no “F” words and so on.

This should be on every curriculum both for the fabulous opportunity for scene study, exercises, and for production. I wish I had it sooner. Thank you!
