No rehearsals, no director, a sealed script and a different performer each night. White Rabbit Red Rabbit, by Iranian author Nassim Soleimanpour, is a potent reminder of the transgressive and transformative power of theatre. You are discouraged from researching the play too much as it is part of the experience to know as little as the performer.
Award winning: Dublin Fringe Festival Best New Performance 2012, Summerworks Outstanding New Performance Text Award 2011, and The Arches Brick Award, Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2011.
Note: This play is NOT overtly political, and should not be portrayed as such. It operates on a deeper, metaphoric level, and very expressly avoids overt political comment. All media and press agents have to keep in mind that the playwright is an Iranian native. We therefore ask the press to be judicious in their reportage.
