About The Event

Leap of Fate in association with Aurora Nova presents

White Rabbit Red Rabbit

Written by Nassim Soleimanpour

Will you participate? Will you be manipulated? Will you listen? Will you really listen? 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 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 joint premiere in 2011, the play has been translated into over 25 different languages and has been performed over 1000 times by some of the biggest names in theatre and film, including actors Whoopi Goldberg, Nathan Lane, John Hurt, Simon McBurney, Stephen Fry, Sinead Cusack, Marcus Brigstocke and Ken Loach.

Note: 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. All media and press agents have to keep in mind that the playwright is an Iranian native. We therefore ask the press to be judicious in their reportage.

Our Performers:

Heather May has been performing on stages since 1994. In 2008, she made London her home and has performed at the Palace Theatre, TAP, the Auburn (previously McManus) Stage and Spriet. Known locally as a "Chameleon of Comedy", she often disguises herself to play multiple characters in a single play. To perform in White Rabbit Red Rabbit is a dream come true for any experienced actor!

Kydra Ryan is an actor, writer, and director. She is also the Associate Artistic Director of AlvegoRoot Theatre. Recent acting credits include Bright Blooming Days (Doors Open and AlvegoRoot Theatre), The Lawyer of La Salette (AlvegoRoot Theatre), L’Histoire du soldat (Saint James Chamber Music Series), Lawrence Station (Fridge Door Live Theatre and AlvegoRoot Theatre), and february (AlvegoRoot Theatre).
