Fringe preview: Actor schedule for WHITE RABBIT, RED RABBIT includes David Morse

When he refused military service and was forbidden to leave his home country, Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour sent his autobiographical play White Rabbit, Red Rabbit off to see the world in his stead. Part of an ongoing international tour, FringeArts’ 13-performance engagement follows the playwright’s rules: A script waits in a sealed envelope. The audience arrives. Each night, a different actor steps on stage and opens the envelope, reading the script aloud for the first—and last—time.

Film, TV, and theater actor David Morse, winner of an Obie and nominee for an Emmy, leads an all-star line-up of local performers who will perform Soleimanpour’s work. Here’s the full schedule:
