Return to an era when Zanzibar was ruled by sultans, and enter a vanished world of harams, slave trading and court intrigues. Rita Parisi of Waterfall Productions has adapted Salamah's memoirs into a one woman theatrical presentation, where you will "meet" the former princess and learn about her life in Zanzibar and Germany, from childhood to being a young widow with small children.
