No director. No rehearsal. Just a script that remains unseen in a sealed box until a different guest actor steps out onto the stage every night. As the pages turn, both the unprepared actor and audience find themselves partaking in an audacious theatrical experiment.
A tender connection between strangers is forged when the story left behind by the playwright begins to unravel. Surprising, disarming and ultimately moving, Nassim is at once touchingly autobiographical and powerfully universal.
After the international acclaim of his first unconventional play White Rabbit, Red Rabbit, Nassim Soleimanpour was intent on creating a work his own mother could understand which involves using words from his native language Farsi. Nassim is an exploration of the beauty and politics of language, and the ways in which mother-tongues both divide and unite us.
