30-year-old Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour’s arresting and allegorical work dissects the experience of a whole generation in this wild, original play. Each night an acclaimed Canadian actor, who has never before seen or read this play, is handed a sealed envelope. They open it and begin. Neither actor nor audience knows what lies ahead on this metaphorical journey into extreme experience.
