Performers announced for Bush’s Nassim

Published June 7, 2017

Alexi Kaye Campbell, Khalid Abdalla and Vivienne Acheampong are among the performers who will participate in new Bush Theatre Studio play Nassim this summer.

Penned by Nassim Soleimanpour (While Rabbit Red Rabbit), and directed by Bush Associate Director Omar Elerian (One Cold Dark Night), Nassim is a daring theatrical experiment which sees a different cultural figure join Nassim on stage to perform the work each performance… with no rehearsals or preparation, and the actor reading the script for the very first time.

Other performers will include director Phelim McDermott (Akhnaten), writer and performer Sabrian Mahfouz (With A Little Bit Of Luck) and actor Hattie Morahan (Anatomy Of A Suicide).

The show previews at the Bush Theatre Studio from 25-29 July, before transferring to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Aiming to explore the power of language to unite us in unknown, uncertain times, Nassim is the titular Iranian playwright’s second play to receive its UK Premiere at the Bush Theatre, and follows Soleimanpour’s globally acclaimed White Rabbit Red Rabbit, which has been translated into 15 different languages and performed over 1000 times worldwide.

Nassim is designed by Rhys Jarman, with lighting design by Rajiv Pattani and sound design by James Swadlo.
