Nassim

Fringe First Award Winner 2017
Sold out
Part of Nassim Plays

Dear performer. I want to show you something. Did you know, in Farsi my name is written like this:  ‘.ROUPNAMIELOS MISSAN si eman yM’

Did you know Nassim means ‘breeze’ in Farsi? From Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour, comes an audacious theatrical experiment that explores the power of language to unite us in unknown, uncertain times.

No rehearsals. No preparation. Just a sealed envelope and an actor reading a script for the first time. Plus some tomatoes. From the playwright who took Broadway by storm.

Since its joint premiere in 2011, in Edinburgh and at the Summerworks festival, Soleimanpour’s play White Rabbit Red Rabbit has been translated into 25 different languages and performed over 1000 times by some of the biggest names in theatre and film, including Sinead Cusack, Ken Loach, Whoopi Goldberg.

Just as each performer arrives unprepared on the night, audiences will also surprised by who is performing alongside Nassim.

Nassim returns to the Bush this September as part of Nassim Plays following its premiere in July 2017 and a visit to the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh in August 2017.
