White Rabbit Red Rabbit

One of the most toured plays in the contemporary history of theatre! 

March 4 and 5, 10pm, Pure Life Theatre 3801

Hillsborough St., Raleigh

No rehearsals. No director. No set. A different actor reads the script cold for the first time at each performance.

One Show Added April 24, 7:30pm

Forbidden to leave his country, playwright Nassim Soleimanpour distilled the experience of an entire generation in a wild, utterly original play, a work about contemporary Iran and Nassim’s generation, born amidst the hardship of 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 translated into more than 25 languages and performed over 3000 times by some of the biggest names in theatre and film including actors John Hurt, Whoopi Goldberg, Nathan Lane, Stephen Rea, Sinead Cusack, Alan Cumming and many, many more.

Michael and Sidney brought laughter and tears to Nassim's wide-ranging text.

 Shawn brought us a surprise ending with some superb in-betweens.
