2017 Regional Theatre Tony Award Recipient Dallas Theater Center (DTC) presents White Rabbit Red Rabbit by Nassim Soleimanpour at the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre Studio Theatre. White Rabbit Red Rabbit begins on May 30 and runs through July 1. A Pay-What-You-Can performance will be Sunday, June 3 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now online and by phone at (214) 880-0202.
White Rabbit Red Rabbit has been called a play, but it’s a lively, global sensation that no one is allowed to talk about. Its award-winning playwright is Iranian. His words have escaped censorship and are awaiting the audience. Slyly humorous and audaciously pointed, this ‘theater entertainment meets social experiment’ is unlike anything, and will make you question everything.
The play you see is sealed inside an envelope and the actor who will perform the play has never seen it. In fact, there is a new actor every performance, and they’ve only been told what is absolutely necessary: “Do not Google this play. Prepare to impersonate a XXX. Once you start, you must finish… no matter what.”
