Bruno Bettelheim, in his award-winning book, salutes the story of Scheherazade as one of the world's most effective fairy tales: "What greater testimony can we have to the power of fairy tales to change our personality than the ending of this one with hatred being changed into love." It is exactly this that Lowell Swortzell dramatizes in his play which shows how Scheherazade not only saves her own life but also transforms the cruel sultan into a compassionate and understanding human being.
