“Wildly unpredictable and completely unforgettable, White Rabbit Red Rabbit is a punch in the air for self-expression; a testament to the power of words to transcend cultures and borders. You have to be there.” New Zealand Herald

With no rehearsals, no director, a different actor each night, and a script waiting in a sealed envelope on stage, internationally acclaimed “White Rabbit Red Rabbit”, by Iranian writer Nassim Soleimanpour, is an audacious theatrical experiment, a funny and moving play, and a potent reminder of the transgressive and transformative power of theatre.

Forbidden to leave his native Iran, Soleimanpour wrote a play which travelled the world in his place. The audience joins each different performer on a journey into the unknown; stumbling upon the personal and profound, the limits of liberty and ultimately where theatre can take you. Since its premiere in 2011, the play has been translated into over 25 different languages and been performed over 1000 times by some of the biggest names in theatre and film, including actors Whoopi Goldberg, Nathan Lane, John Hurt, Stephen Fry, Sinead Cusack, and Ken Loach.

On Saturday, November 9 local legend Bessie Wapp, who is a musician, theatre artist, and educator, who herself creates, performs & directs original theatre, will put her spin on the play.

Between 50-90 mins. Recommended for audiences 12+
