WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT
February 21 — 23, 2019
(February 1, 2019, Tucson, Arizona); Invisible Theatre continues its 48th Anniversary Season with the internationally acclaimed WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT by Nassim Soleimanpour on February 21-23, 2019. Forget your preconceived notions of what theater is or should be, WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT has been called a play, but it's a lively, global sensation that no one is allowed to talk about. Its award-winning playwright is Iranian. His words have escaped censorship and are awaiting you, the audience. Each night, a brave new actor will take the stage, open an envelope containing an unfamiliar script, and act by thinking on his or her feet. Experience a play with no rehearsals, no director and no set.
It is truly amazing.
