    Ticketing for White Rabbit Red Rabbit is pay-as-you-can, with $12, $17, & $27 options available. We would like theatre to be accessible for all, but like many arts organizations, the current circumstances are challenging. Pay-as-you-can pricing means that those who can pay more have that option, and those who can't are still able to see the show.

    When you purchase a ticket, you will receive two emails, one with a receipt and one with the ticket link that will be posted in the middle of the email.

    White Rabbit Red Rabbit will be performed 11 times, each by a different actor.

    Show Description:

    With no rehearsal, no director, a different actor each night, and a script waiting in a sealed envelope on stage, internationally acclaimed White Rabbit, Red Rabbit by Iranian writer Nassim Soleimanpour is an audacious theatrical experiment and a potent reminder of the transgressive and transformative power of theatre.

    Since its joint premiere in 2011 in Edinburgh and Summerworks festival, White Rabbit, Red Rabbit has been translated into more than 25 different languages and has been performed over 1000 times by some of the biggest names in theatre and film including actors John Hurt, Whoopi Goldberg, Nathan Lane, Alan Cumming, Stephen Rea, Sinead Cusack, Marcus Brigstocke, Dominic West, and film director Ken Loach.
