THE PLAY YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE IS SEALED INSIDE AN ENVELOPE….
The production White Rabbit Red Rabbit, a unique production at the Westside Theatre, provides us with the basic practices of creating theatre: writer writes, producer selects, actor performs. But, in this instance, the one person show, demonstrates what we often take for granted. The actor about to perform has never seen it. In fact, there is a new actor every performance, and they’ve only been told what is absolutely necessary. And more, the writer, Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour can not have his work produced in his homeland.
Watch as the creators and performers share their journeys and commitment to the unknown through the world of White Rabbit Red Rabbit.
