White Rabbit, Red Rabbit
Will you participate? Will you listen? Will you really listen?
With no rehearsals, no director, and a script waiting in a sealed envelope on stage, internationally acclaimed White Rabbit Red Rabbit, by Iranian writer Nassim Soleimanpour, is an audacious theatrical experiment and a potent reminder of the transgressive and transformative power of theatre.
Forbidden to leave his native Iran, Soleimanpour wrote a play which travelled the world in his place.
The audience joins the performer on a journey into the unknown; stumbling upon the personal and profound, the limits of liberty and ultimately where theatre can take you.
Since its joint premiere in 2011, the play has been translated into over 30 different languages and has been performed over 1000 times by some of the biggest names in theatre and film, including actors Whoopi Goldberg, and Ken Loach.
