House of Abbas (The Legacy of Harun Al-Rashid)

00000
Set in the 9th Century Caliphal court in Baghdad, in the very halls once presided upon by the great Abbasid Caliph Harun al-Rashid, his son, al-Amin now reigns over the most powerful and most prosperous empire in the history of Islam. Under the rule of Harun al-Rashid, the Islamic Golden Age was at its zenith - a time of unprecedented scientific, religious and artistic prosperity. But the burden of maintaining his fathers vast empire weighs heavy upon the reckless al-Amin. His stately and learned half brother al-Ma'mun has suffered witnessing the degradation of the House of Abbas at the hands of careless new Caliph. What was once an intimate fraternal bond may soon untether, jeopardizing the legacy of harun al-Rashid and threatening to tear a once glorious empire apart from the inside out. Written in pentameter, House of Abbas is an ambitious verse play that conjures unapologetically the spectre of true Shakeperean tragedy.
