    No rehearsals. No preparation. Just a sealed envelope and an actor reading a script for the first time. Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour returns with an audacious theatrical event in which you will transcend borders and languages. Illuminating, touching and playful, Soleimanpour’s latest offering will feature a different actor on stage with the playwright himself each performance.

    Nassim follows Soleimanpour’s globally acclaimed White Rabbit Red Rabbit, which has been translated into 15 different languages and performed over 1000 times by names including Sinead Cusack, Ken Loach and Whoopi Goldberg.
