Four plays. One writer. No preparation.
In a celebration of his work, we bring together all four of Iranian theatre-maker Nassim Soleimanpour’s plays which will play in repertory over a week.
These include the self-titled Nassim, commissioned by the Bush Theatre and directed by Omar Elerian; international hit White Rabbit Red Rabbit, presented by Aurora Nova; Blank (Bush Theatre’s RADAR 2015 and Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016), presented by Aurora Nova, and the UK premiere of new play Cook, co-created by Nassim Soleimanpour and the Danish writer and director Jesper Pedersen.
This retrospective follows a run of Nassim at the Traverse Theatre as part of this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Soleimanpour’s work is unique in that it requires no rehearsals, no preparation. Just a sealed envelope and a different actor each night reading a script for the first time.
