Known for plays without directors, sets and rehearsals, the acclaimed Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour takes it to extremes in his new play Blank. Each night the gap-riddled script is to be completed by a new performer and a live audience. The play becomes a story machine to share the life story of the playwright, the performer and a random audience member. Blank celebrates the communal and elusive nature of theatre as audience members shout, laugh, gasp and collaborate to write the evening’s story, a story that will never be told in the same way ever again.
