Starring Tyler Nye

No rehearsals. No director. No set.
A play by Nassim Soleimanpour / Iran

Forbidden to leave his country, playwright Soleimanpour distills the experience of an entire generation in this wild, utterly original play. A remarkable theatrical experience where a different actor each night is presented a script sealed in an envelope, the play can never be performed by the same actor ever again.

It’s the true meaning of one-night-only. Each actor has just one chance. No do-overs. No repeats. No encores.
‍WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT is a theatrical experiment delving into the big topics of freedom, authority, obedience, responsibility, life, death, and everything in between.

“A playful, enigmatic and haunting solo show by the Iranian writer Nassim Soleimanpour.” –The New York Times

Tyler Nye, originally from Keene Valley, is happy to be back in the Adirondacks, and even more happy to be back on stage (after over 2 years!). Visit his website HERE.


An Open Mic + Reading featuring North Country Authors

In an effort to give local writers a place to both share their work and meet new authors, Adirondack Center for Writing is launching a new open mic + reading series called Barkreaders. This series will take place 6 times a year, on the second Wednesday of the month (March, May, July, September, November, January), at Adirondack Center for Writing (15 Broadway, Saranac Lake, NY 12983).

The first Barkreaders guest is Megan Culhane Galbraith, from Troy, New York, whose debut memoir, The Guild of the Infant Saviour, was released last year by Ohio State University Press. The book is about one adoptee’s quest for her past. Galbraith pairs narrative with images from The Dollhouse, her visual art project, as she weaves a personal and cultural history of adoption as it relates to ideas around guilt, shame, identity, and memory itself. Mary Gaitskill calls the book, “Beautiful, sad, heartening and…mysterious. In its generous scope, Galbraith’s book honors the depth and mystery of all human lives, whether we grew up with birth parents or not.” Galbraith will read at ACW on March 9th, at 7pm, with an open-mic to follow.

Barkreaders will include a 10-15 minute featured reading by the month’s guest, and then an open mic where audience members can sign-up to read a short piece of writing. Open mics are a great place for writers both new and experienced to test out their work in front of a supportive audience. Since COVID has largely moved readings and open mics online, readers and writers have expressed a desire for in-person literary gatherings in order to grow community, hone new work, find an audience, and to learn about new books being published by North Country authors.

Space is limited. RSVP HERE.
