The White Rabbit Red Rabbit website says:
"THE PLAY YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE IS SEALED INSIDE AN ENVELOPE.
The actor about to perform has never seen it. In fact, there is a new actor every performance, and they’ve only been told what is absolutely necessary:
Do not Google this play.
Prepare to impersonate a [blank].
Once you start, you must finish...
NO MATTER WHAT.
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, Nassim Soleimanpour, is Iranian. His words have escaped censorship and are awaiting your audience. Slyly humorous and audaciously pointed, this ‘theater entertainment meets social experiment’ is unlike anything, and will make you question everything. Have fun!
WE DARE YOU NOT TO GOOGLE FOR MORE.
JOIN THE ACTORS AND LEAP."
Five performers. A different performer every night delivering the 'monologue'.
Come along to see this audacious piece of 'theatre' in the Pembroke Players committee play!

URGENT: This play is NOT overtly political, and should not be portrayed as such. It operates on a deeper, metaphoric level, and very expressly avoids overt political comment. All media and press agents have to keep in mind that the playwright lives in Iran. We therefore ask the press to be judicious in their reportage.
