Dear performer. I want to show you something. Did you know, in Farsi my name is written like this:  ‘.ROUPNAMIELOS MISSAN si eman yM’

Did you know Nassim means ‘breeze’ in Farsi?

An audacious theatrical experiment that explores the power of language to unite us in unknown, uncertain times.

No rehearsals. No preparation. Just a sealed envelope and an actor reading a script for the first time. Plus some tomatoes. And, on stage himself, the playwright taking Broadway by storm.

One of the listed actors will join Soleimanpour for each show.

“A profound and warmly moving exploration of Soleimanpour’s own identity, restrained yet quietly shattering... A brilliant work.”

Arts Desk (other reviewers)

“Nassim employs playfulness, whimsy, and a punishment involving tomatoes... An unusually vivid celebration of theatre’s liveness.”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Soleimanpour makes a quietly persuasive case for theatre’s special power to foster empathy.”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Simple, sweet story about mothers and mother-tongues... There's a gentle humour to this winning, whimsical set-up.”

Holly Williams (What's On Stage, Time Out, Independent)

“Infectious account of flight from tyranny.”
