Interrobang Theatre Project has announced the line-up for award-winning Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour’s acclaimed solo show WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT, which features a different actor each week who has never read the play before. The Off-Broadway production featured major stage and film actors such as Nathan Lane, Alan Cumming, and Whoopie Goldberg. There’s no rehearsal and no director. Each night’s performer is handed a script in a sealed envelope as they step onto the stage. Forbidden to leave Iran, Soleimanpour came up with the concept to have his voice heard around the world.
Interrobangs’ WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT performers are Stephanie Shum (September 24), JD Caudill (October 1), Echaka Agba (October 8), Michael Turrentine (October 15), Joe Lino (October 22), David Cerda (October 29), Shawna Franks (November 5) and Owais Ahmed (November 12).
The production plays at The Den Theatre, 1331 N. Milwaukee Ave. Tickets go on sale shortly at www.interrobangtheatre.org.
