White Rabbit, Red Rabbit


There’s no director, and no rehearsal time, either. Just a sealed script sitting on an empty stage, waiting for an actor to open it for the first time in front of a large audience. Two local theatrical legends – James Pickering and Laura Gordon – will take up the challenge on Nov. 9 and Nov. 30, respectively.
