Unique Solo Touring Theatrical Shows & Creative Craft Workshops
Return to an era when Zanzibar was ruled by sultans, and enter a vanished world of harems, slave trading and court intrigues. Salamah bint Said, a sultan's daughter who fled her gilded cage offers a compelling look at nineteenth-century Arabic and African royal life. After years of exile in Europe, the former princess wrote this fascinating memoir as a legacy for her children and a warm reminiscence of her island home.

that entertain and inspire her audiences. Her unique shows highlight her passion for storytelling, theatre, history, costuming, and literature. Her love for her work is evident in every performance whether you are hearing for the first time, 19th and 20th century Gothic tales, being entertained by an Edwardian lady during her afternoon tea, or watching a one-woman play about the wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald and roaring 20's flapper, Zelda Fitzgerald.
