WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT
“Wildly unpredictable and completely unforgettable.... a testament to the power of words to transcend cultures and borders. You have to be there.” New Zealand Herald
“A stunning piece of theatre, thought-provoking and morally unsettling.” Fringereview
Returning to the Fringe for 10 performances only.
Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour was denied a passport because of his status as conscientious objector. Unable to travel, he wrote a play which, since its premiere in 2011, has taken audiences by storm and been celebrated worldwide as one of the most transformative and original evenings in theatre.
Every performance is unique - and a surprise for the brave actor who is not allowed to see the script until the moment they arrive on stage, joining the audience on a journey into the unknown; stumbling upon the personal and profound, the limits of liberty and ultimately where theatre can take you, with or without a passport. Previous performers include John Hurt, Stephen Rea, Sinead Cusack, Marcus Brigstocke, Sarah Millican and film maker Ken Loach.
A different actor for every performance. Check back for list of performers closer to the time.
Written by Nassim Soleimanpour. White Rabbit, Red Rabbit was originally produced by Volcano Theatre in association with Necessary Angel and Wolfgang Hoffmann.
White Rabbit Red Rabbit currently tours internationally. See touring page
