White Rabbit Red Rabbit (A Volcano (Canada) / Wolfgang Hoffmann / Remarkable Arts Production)

By | Published on Sunday 28 August 2011

Written by Iranian Nassim Soleimanpour, ‘White Rabbit Red Rabbit’ is more an experiment than a play. It beckons the audience on a journey exploring ideas of responsibility and democracy in an oppressive society, as we (the audience) are forced to make choices throughout. This dramatic monologue is read afresh by a new actor at each performance, adding a unique and raw quality to an already compelling show. It is fascinating to observe the actor become taken aback by the actions the writer has scripted. Yet despite the thought-provoking nature of the play, the writer’s sense of humour also shines through in a series of bizarre episodes to delight the audience. A truly captivating and powerful piece of theatre.

St George’s West, 5 – 29 Aug, 12.15pm (1.30pm), £10.00 – £12.00, fpp311.
