The Perfumed Garden is perhaps the most comprehensive treatise on the art of love making and sexual pleasure. Written over 400 years ago in Arabia by Shayakh Umar ibn Muhammed al-Nefzawi it is unquestionably one of the greatest books ever written on the subject of eroticism. It delicately and joyously catalogues innumerable and imaginative acts of coitus. Both tender and practical, The Perfumed Garden is a timeless work of literature that will enrich and enlighten students for love of future generations as surely as it has done so in the past. This production is read by Frances Tomelty, a talented and versatile actress who's work covers both films, TV and of course, the Royal Shakespeare Company. She has performed a number of audio recordings and received several awards.
