Riverside Theatre presents an exhilarating, one-night only performance of Nassim Soleimanpour's White Rabbit, Red Rabbit. 

An unnamed actor will step onto the stage and remove a script from a sealed envelope, proceeding to read, to perform it, for the first time. You and the rest of the audience will discover the play with the actor, and become part of an intimate, theatrical experience.

In 2010, Nassim, an Iranian playwright, could not get a passport because he refused to do obligatory national (military) service, so he created this play that could travel the world without him.  In 2013 he was finally able to travel to see his own piece onstage.  Many theaters still reserve a symbolically empty seat for the playwright.

$30 show/ $40 show & VIP reception with the actor
A limited number of $20 student tickets are available

A portion of the ticket price is tax-deductible. Proceeds benefit Riverside Theatre.

Box Office hours: Monday - Friday, noon-4pm & 1 hour before shows
(The Box Office is closed, Mon 4/27)
