No director. No set. No rehearsals.
A metaphorical work by Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour, White Rabbit Red Rabbit has been performed in many cities, but is always unique, thanks to Soleimanpour’s rules: Each night of the performance, the audience arrives to a stage set with only a script in a sealed envelope. Every night, a different actor takes the stage, opens the envelope, and reads the script aloud for the first—and last—time.
Join us in discovering the play no one is allowed to talk about.
