B Street Theatre Presents a Mysterious Special Production WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT

B Street Theatre Presents a Mysterious Special Production WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT

No Set. No director. No Rehearsal. Each night, a different actor arrives on stage and is handed a sealed envelope. Together, actor and audience discover the mystery that lies in the envelope.

Over three weeks, your favorite members of the B Street Theatre Acting Company, plus a few invited guests will get the chance to unravel the riddle of White Rabbit Red Rabbit, where the script remains the same, but the performance is always excitingly new and different. Each night, the actor will read the script for the first time in a show the New York Times called "playful, enigmatic and haunting". You will never experience anything like this show and for once, we encourage you to keep those cell phones out during the play!

NOTICE: This play is NOT overtly political, and should not be portrayed as such. It operates on a deeper, metaphoric level, and very expressly avoids overt political comment. We therefore ask the press to be judicious in their reportage.

A special engagement production presented by B Street Theatre in association with Aurora Nova Productions and Boat Rocker, White Rabbit Red Rabbit by Iranian writer Nassim Soleimanpour, is an audacious theatrical experiment and a potent reminder of the transgressive and transformative power of theatre.

Since its joint premiere in 2011 in Edinburgh and Summerworks festival White Rabbit Red Rabbit has been translated into more than 25 different languages and been performed over 1000 times by some of the biggest names in theatre and film including actors such as John Hurt, Whoopi Goldberg, Nathan Lane, Stephen Rea, Sinead Cusack, Marcus Brigstocke, Dominic West and film director Ken Loach.
