Ten-Second Takeaway

Iran-based playwright Naseer Soleimanpour’s ‘secret play’ White Rabbit Red Rabbit is hitting Mumbai this month.

What’s It About?

The play has to be performed each night by a different actor, who has not seen the script before. The script is handed over in a sealed envelope on stage {not before the play, but on the spot}. The actor envisions the script in his/her way and performs.

Each show has one actor performing. We get to see Richa Chaddha, Sohrab Ardeshir, Anuvab Pal among others.

So We’re Thinking…

It’ll be interesting to see a play with no rehearsals, just pure performance rooted in the actor’s instinct.

#LBBTip: The playwright is forbidden to leave Iran, but the play has travelled all over the world with actors like Whoopi Goldberg and Josh Radnor performing at Broadway.
