With no rehearsal, no director, a different actor each night, 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.
Since its joint premiere in 2011 in Edinburgh and Summerworks festival “White Rabbit, Red Rabbit” has been translated into more than 25 different languages and been performed over 1000 times by some of the biggest names in theatre and film including actors John Hurt, Whoopi Goldberg, Nathan Lane, Stephen Rea, Sinead Cusack, Marcus Brigstocke, Dominic West and film director Ken Loach.
White Rabbit, Red Rabbit
"Fascinating and engrossing hour of thinly veiled social commentary and an edgy, contemporary take on the theatre genre."
"Wildly unpredictable and completely unforgettable, White Rabbit, Red Rabbit is a punch in the air for self-expression; 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."
