AIP is proud to be partnering with The Voices Theatre in Madison to present four virtual performances of White Rabbit, Red Rabbit.
The actors have never seen the script. There is no rehearsal, no director.
White Rabbit Red Rabbit is a global phenomenon that no one is allowed to talk about. Actors may not perform if they’ve ever seen the show before; the script will be handed to them in a sealed envelope as they take the stage. They can only perform once.
Written by Nassim Soleimanpour, an Iranian native who was not permitted to leave Iran, who instead wrote this play so we could all take a journey with him. White Rabbit Red Rabbit has been performed by Nathan Lane, Alan Cumming, Whoopi Goldberg, Laura Linney, Martin Short, Sinead Cusack, F. Murray Abraham, Cynthia Nixon, Stephen Rea, and John Hurt among many others. It has been translated into more than 30 languages and performed over 3,000 times!
“A thoughtful, playful response to oppression.” – The Guardian
“The whole experience is altogether funny and serious and surprising and you — by which I mean we — are all in it together.” — San Francisco Examiner
