Iranian writer Nassim Soleimanpour’s audacious theatrical experiment will come as a shock — not least to the performer handed the script the moment they walk on stage. A different unsuspecting performer will take the stage each night, joining the audience on a journey into the unknown; stumbling upon the humorous, terrifying and utterly personal.

This internationally acclaimed new work forges connections across time and continents. We just can’t promise everyone will make it out alive.

The element of risk is high, and this titillates and terrifies the audience... From the moment McClements opens the sealed envelope containing the script, the piece is engaging and accessible, often funny, sometimes menacing and involves gentle audience participation.
