"A PLAYFUL, ENIGMATIC AND HAUNTING SHOW that takes on a gravity that prickles your skin, and keeps taking unexpected turns that often lead us back to the relief of laughter. Any worthy theatrical experience is a dive down into a rabbit hole, where the destination is unknown. The distinction of White Rabbit Red Rabbit is that the performer moves right alongside us on the journey."
Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
"A dazzling, transcendent piece of alive-and-kicking theater...I experienced a play that no one in the world will ever experience again... the whole building felt like it was living and breathing."
Entertainment Weekly, Critics Grade: A
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:
Do not Google this play.
Prepare to impersonate a .
Once you start, you must finish...
NO MATTER WHAT.
WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT has been called a play. But it’s a lively, global sensation that no-one is allowed to talk about. Its award-winning playwright, Nassim Soleimanpour, is Iranian. His words have escaped censorship and are awaiting your audience. Slyly humorous and audaciously pointed, this ‘theater entertainment meets social experiment’ is unlike anything, and will make you question everything. Have fun!
The Box Office opens at 12:00PM on performance days.
All tickets include a $1.50 facility fee. A limited number of rush tickets will be available the day of the performance when the box office opens. Rush tickets are cash only and have a limit of 2 per person. Rush seats will not be available for the May 2nd performance.
Running Time: 75 minutes
A portion of the play’s profits will go to PEN International, the world’s leading association of writers working to promote literature and defend freedom of expression around the world.
