No rehearsals. A different guest actor at every performance. A sealed envelope. And some surprises.

NASSIM was originally commissioned and produced by the Bush Theatre and received its world premiere at the Bush Theatre, London, July 25, 2017.

Nassim Soleimanpour's first play, White Rabbit Red Rabbit, ran for more than nine months in New York, and was performed by Whoopi Goldberg, Bobby Cannavale, Nathan Lane, F. Murray Abraham, and other celebrated actors. It has been performed thousands of times in the United States and has been translated into more than 25 languages. Nassim is his latest exploration into imaginative storytelling that also challenges traditional theatrical forms.

Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.NYCityCenter.org; on the phone by calling CityTix at 212-581-1212; or in person at New York City Center box office, open Monday-Saturday, noon-8pm, and Sunday, noon-7:30pm.
