No rehearsals, sealed script, ‘White Rabbit Red Rabbit’ will prove transformative


In association with Aurora Nova Productions and Boat Rocker Entertainment, the Laboratory Theater of Florida will present the Southwest Florida premiere of White Rabbit Red Rabbit from October 14 through October 23.

The play is written by Nassim Soleimanpour, who could not leave Iran when he wrote White Rabbit Red Rabbit due to his refusal to serve in the military as a conscientious objector. His refusal resulted in the revocation of his passport and the restriction of  his international travel privileges. He encourages participants to break traditional theater etiquette and leave their cell phones ON for reasons explained before the performance.

With no rehearsal, no director, a different actor each night, and a script waiting in a sealed envelope on stage, this show is a theatrical experience that reminds us of the transformative power of theater.

“The play invites the audience as well as the performer to enjoy the raw immediacy of theater,” notes Lab Theater Artistic Director Annette Trossbach. “It’s an artistic risk for each of the performers and therefore a unique spectacle for each of the audiences.”

The lineup of actors and celebrity performers willing to take that risk includes Stephanie Davis, Sonya McCarter, Dave Yudowitz, Eric Raddatz, Randall Kenneth Jones, Melanie Payne, PJ McCready, Lucy Sundby, and Ella Nayor.
