No director! No stage set! No rehearsal! Even no trace of the playwright?
When he was banned from leaving the country by his government, Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour penned the mysterious play White Rabbit Red Rabbit to travel the world on his behalf. The actor receives the script for the first time not until the last moment when the stage lights are on, right in front of the audience. It is acting meeting with reading the script when words are burst with emotions on stage. Both the actor and the audience suddenly come to realise they are already trapped in the ingenious plot the writer has deployed.
With its exquisite script coupled with uncommon actor-audience interactions, this play has been performed for over 1,000 times around the world. The Cantonese version will make its debut by the acclaimed actor Wong Pak Hou from Macao. There is nothing to know in advance. All you need to do is to throw yourself into this unknown theatrical game.
