What’s On: White Rabbit, Red Rabbit (The X Collective)

White Rabbit, Red Rabbit

7 – 30 October 2022

Fate Container Studios, 49 Vulture Street, West End

For some performers it’s their worst nightmare; for others it is a moment of catharsis. No rehearsals, no director, a script waiting in a sealed envelope on stage, and a different actor each performance. White Rabbit, Red Rabbit is a daring theatrical experiment and internationally acclaimed piece of avant garde theater. Since its premiere in 2011, the play has been translated into 25 different languages and has been performed over 2000 times. 

Forbidden to leave his country, Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour wrote a work that was able to travel the world in his place. Each night, the audience joins different performers on a trip into the unknown, stumbling upon the personal and profound, the limits of liberty, and ultimately an effective reminder of the transformative power of theatre.

Each night, two different performers are introduced on stage and handed the mysterious script, sealed in an envelope. No two shows will be the same and each performer will personalise and resonate with different parts of the script, interacting with their audience differently as they read it for the very first time.

The X Collective has put together a stellar cast of performers for their 2022 season, with a wide array of local favourites scheduled to perform alongside nationally known actors:
