Show Warning: Strong Language

Scotsman Fringe First Award Winner 2017

From Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour comes an audacious new theatrical experiment. Each night a different performer joins the playwright on stage, while the script waits unseen in a sealed box…Touchingly autobiographical yet powerfully universal, it is a striking theatrical demonstration of how language can both divide and unite us.

NASSIM follows Soleimanpour’s globally acclaimed White Rabbit, Red Rabbit.

This is probably the only show you will ever see that is also a lesson in speaking Farsi. Although the real lesson is, of course, in speaking the universal language of humanity”—The Guardian

NASSIM managed to challenge my way of thinking and impacted me deeply in that soft place in my heart where my childhood lives”—New York Theatre Guide
