White Rabbit Red Rabbit

Presented by the Bush Theatre in association with Aurora Nova
Sold out
Part of Nassim Plays

No rehearsals. No director. No set.

The play you’re about to see is sealed inside an envelope. The actor who’s going to perform has never seen it. In fact, there is a new actor every performance.

Internationally acclaimed White Rabbit, Red Rabbit, by Iranian writer Nassim Soleimanpour, is an audacious theatrical experiment and a potent reminder of the transgressive and transformative power of theatre.

Since its joint premiere in 2011, in Edinburgh and at the Summerworks festival, White Rabbit, Red Rabbit has been translated into 15 different languages and has been performed over 200 times by some of the biggest names in theatre and film, including actors Stephen Rea, Sinead Cusack, Marcus Brigstocke and Ken Loach. And it took Broadway by storm.

We double dare you not to Google this play. Take a chance. Join the actors. Once you start, you’ve got to finish. No matter what.

An exclusive chance to see this smash hit again in London.


Warning: Life and the reality of death (including suicide) are interrogated in White Rabbit, Red Rabbit. Please call box office if you’d like more information.
