September 12


Seven Stages Theatre


Imagine being 29 and forbidden to leave your country. Nassim Soleimanpour dissects the experience of a whole generation in a wild, utterly original play from Iran. Forbidden to travel, he turns his isolation to his own advantage with a play that requires no director, no set and a different actor for every performance. Out of Hand will produce 24 different readings of this play over a 3 month span, each with a different actor cold reading the script in front of an audience for the first time. We will partner with local theaters for 12 of the performances and have another 12 performances in private homes.

On the night of this performance, Layla, the only child in the theater,  read the last 4 pages of the script.
