David Morse to Open WHITE RABBIT, RED RABBIT at Philadelphia Fringe Festival

Award-winning actor David Morse will be the first to perform White Rabbit, Red Rabbit at this year's Fringe Festival presented by FringeArts for one performance only on Saturday, Sept. 6 at 4 p.m. A different actor takes the stage for each performance. A lineup of local favorites, including WHYY's Jennifer Lynn, Leonard Haas, Pete Pryor, Mary Tuomanen and Whit MacLaughlin, will each perform the show only once, seeing the script for the first time as they step on stage.

Among his many versatile roles in film, television and theater, Morse is known for Treme, Dancer in the Dark, Contact, The Green Mile, The Hurt Locker and Emmy-nominated roles in House and the HBO miniseries John Adams. He earned Drama Desk and Obie Awards for his portrayal of Uncle Peck in the Off-Broadway play How I Learned to Drive and appeared on Broadway in the Tony-nominated The Seafarer. Morse was most recently seen in Marc Forster's World War Z with Brad Pitt, and will next be seen on screen in Alexandre Aja's Horns with Daniel Radcliffe and Josh Waller's McCanick.

Written by playwright Nassim Soleimanpour, White Rabbit, Red Rabbit tells the true-life story of a young Iranian. When Soleimanpour refused military service and was forbidden to leave his home country of Iran, he wrote this play and sent it off to see the world in his stead. Part of an ongoing international tour, FringeArts' 13-performance engagement follows the playwright's rules: A script waits in a sealed envelope. The audience arrives. Each night, a different actor steps on stage and opens the envelope, reading the script aloud for the first - and last - time.
