      Memoirs of an Arabian Princess from Zanzibar - a play by Rita Parisi

      The story of Salamah bint Said, a sultans daughter who fled her gilded cage, offers a compelling look at nineteenth-century Arabic and African royal life. In "Memoirs of an Arabian Princess from Zanzibar," we return to an era when Zanzibar was ruled by sultans. Enter a vanished world of harems, slave trading, and court intrigues. After years of exile in Europe, the former princess wrote a fascinating memoir as a legacy for her children. It is a warm reminiscence of her island home. Rita Parisi, of Waterfall Productions, has adapted Saids autobiography into this compelling one-woman theatrical presentation. Zanzibar is an island nation resting in the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Africa.
