No rehearsals.
No director.
No set.

A different actor reads the script cold for the first time at each performance.

Will you participate? Will you be manipulated?

Will you listen? Will you really listen?

‘I was born on Azar 19th, 1360 in Tehran. That’s Tehran, December 10th, 1981 in Christian years … ’ Imagine being 29 and forbidden to leave your country. Nassim Soleimanpour dissects the experience of a whole generation in a wild, utterly original play from Iran. Forbidden to travel, he turns his isolation to his own advantage with a play that requires no director, no set and a different actor for every performance.

“He creates a theatrical version of Russian roulette.”
Irish Theatre Magazine ****

“You have to be there. See it if you ever get a chance.”
The Public Reviews ****

“I hit the street and burst into tears. Completely unexpected.”
Nicola Harwood

“Each approach to Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour’s White Rabbit, Red Rabbit contains its own unexpected rewards – and none will be repeated…”
San Francisco Chronicle

“It was a stunning piece of theatre, thought-provoking and morally unsettling. It’s a wonderful testament to the power of words to transcend cultures and borders. It fully deserves five stars.”
Fringe Review (Brighton) ***** Outstanding Show 2012
