No rehearsals. A different actor each night, and a script waiting on stage in a sealed box. And the playwright himself.
Direct from Edinburgh Fringe Festival comes NASSIM – an audacious theatrical experiment exploring the power of language to unite humanity in unknown, uncertain times. Featuring Alison Bell, Benjamin Law, Charlie Pickering, Nakkiah Lui, Catherine McClements and Denise Scott over the course of five nights.

This award-winning show by Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour follows the hugely popular White Rabbit Red Rabbit series – written when Soleimanpour, a conscientious objector, was forbidden to leave his native Iran, travelling the show in his place. Translated into 25 different languages, White Rabbit Red Rabbit has been performed over 1,000 times by some of the biggest names in theatre and film including Sinead Cusack, Ken Loach and Whoopi Goldberg, and locally by the likes of Kat Stewart, Shaun Micallef, Celia Pacquola. Now living in Berlin and able to travel, NASSIM sees Soleimanpour join each performer on stage.
