White Rabbit Red Rabbit: Theatre of the unknown debuts here


Unlike anything else that you have experienced on our local theatrical stages comes Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour’s “White Rabbit Red Rabbit,” a fresh and rare production where every night is a new opportunity to experience something truly remarkable. 

First off, the production features a different guest star in the lead role each night and kicks off once the solo actor is handed a sealed script that they have not read or seen to perform cold for the audience. 

All this happens without the aid of all the usual trappings associated with theatre, with no director, no rehearsals, nor a designed set. Right at the start under this premise, you know we are not in Kansas anymore, Dorothy. 

“Rabbits is truly a unique living breathing avant-garde theatrical experience. Never before has an audience along with the performer stepped into a script together for the very first time,” says Actors’ Theatre of Grand Rapids’ Executive Director Kyle Los.  “It's a raw and intimate. No moment, reaction, or emotion can be pre-crafted or curated.”

The performers selected by Actors’ are highly trained in their craft but will call upon them to focus all that they've learned up to this point. The cast of local actors performing “White Rabbit Red Rabbit” includes Jon Clausen, Laure Walczak, Amy McFadden, Greg Rogers, Jolene Frankey, Joe Anderson, Todd Lewis, and Randy Wyatt. 

This is rare and nail-biting theatre and you only have eight chances to see the production that took off-Broadway by storm. Something inside of me thinks given the line up of talent that we may see a lot of repeat viewings given the nature of this production.
