White Rabbit Red Rabbit
September 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Black C Art Gallery features Nassim Soleimanpour’s WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT.
FROM THE PRODUCERS:
A play by Nassim Soleimanpour / Iran
No rehearsals. No director. No set.
A different actor reads the script cold for the first time at each performance.
“I was born on Azar 19th, 1360 in Tehran. That’s Tehran, December 10th, 1981 in Christian years…”
Forbidden to leave his country, playwright Nassim Soleimanpour distilled the experience of an entire generation in a wild, utterly original play. WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT is a work about contemporary Iran and of Nassim’s generation. A generation born amidst the hardship of the Iran-Iraq war. A generation of computer-literate, well-informed young people who have never known an Iran other than the Islamic Republic.
WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT has been performed over one thousand times worldwide including by Whoopi Goldberg, Nathan Lane, Alan Cumming, Martin Short, Sinead Cusack, F. Murray Abraham, Cynthia Nixon, Stephen Rea, John Hurt. It has been translated into more than 20 languages.

—San Francisco Examiner
“A dazzling, transcendent piece of alive-and-kicking avant-garde theater.” –Entertainment Weekly
