WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT
17 June, 24 June & 1 July 2012
“I was born on Azar 19th, 1360 in Tehran. That’s Tehran, December 10th, 1981 in Christian years…"
29 year old Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour’s arresting and allegorical work, WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT, dissects the experience of a whole generation in a wild, utterly original play.
Unable to travel, Soleimanpour turns his isolation to his own advantage with a play (written in English) that required no director, no set and a different actor for every performance. Each performer will read Soleimanpour’s script for the first time on stage sharing their discovery of this unique and mischievous piece directly with the audience.
