Open sesame! These words are the key to a cave full of glittering treasures. When Ali Baba overhears the 40 thieves entering and leaving the cave, he is delighted with his find. Little does he know of the dangers in store. . .Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves is a cautionary tale of greed, the perfect play to be set against the backdrop of the recession and since this is an up to date story, don't be surprised when 36 thieves have been struck by swine flu! As if that wasn't enough mayhem to convince you, would violence, butchery, ghosts and a love story do the trick?
