White Rabbit Red Rabbit

Nassim Soleimanpour / Iran

“DAZZLING. TRANSCENDENT. Alive-and-kicking avant-garde theater.”

Entertainment Weekly

The play no one is allowed to talk about.

No rehearsals. No director. No set. At each performance, a different actor unseals the script and performs it cold. White Rabbit Red Rabbit offers almost no guarantees, except for one: each performance will be utterly unique. A sublimely cunning work by Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour, White Rabbit Red Rabbit dissects power in a wild, truly original play, pairing the experience of isolation with daring, unexpected comedy.

Join us, why don’t you, for a moment that can never be replicated.
