No rehearsals, no director, no set.

White Rabbit Red Rabbit by Nassim Soleimanpour is a play that has no rehearsals or a director, just a willing performer who doesn’t know the play and the script waiting for them in a sealed envelope on stage…

To date White Rabbit Red Rabbit has been performed in 78 Countries and 30 different languages by over 3,000 different actors, making it the most-performed Iranian play ever! Some of the biggest names in theatre and film have opened the sealed envelope, including Stephen Rea, Nathan Lane, Sinead Cusack, Marcus Brigstocke, Dominic West and Ken Loach. And it took Broadway by storm.

Forbidden to leave his country, playwright Nassim Soleimanpour has distilled the experience of an entire generation in a wild, utterly original play. It’s a surprising, audacious theatre experiment that’s never the same twice. Don’t miss your chance to see this international smash-hit again in London.

We’re thrilled to announce that Sara Amini – artistic director of Seemia Theatre – will be taking up the White Rabbit Red Rabbit mantle at artsdepot.

Sara is from Iran, and is now based in London. She studied BA Theatre Directing at Tehran University and MA Performance Making at Goldsmiths, University of London. She also trained with Teatr Pieśń Kozła (Song of the Goat) Theatre Company and Ariane Mnouchkine and Theatre du Soleil. She is an associate artist at Oxford Playhouse in 2024.

Wildly unpredictable and completely unforgettable, White Rabbit, Red Rabbit is a punch in the air for self-expression; a testament to the power of words to transcend cultures and borders. You have to be there.

New Zealand Herald

A dazzling, transcendent piece of alive-and-kicking theatre... I experienced a play that no one in the world will ever experience again... The whole building felt like it was living and breathing.
