THREE well-known actors, Siobhan Redmond, Phill Jupitus and Ewen Bremner, will star in an unusual play at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh next week.

They will perform in White Rabbit Red Rabbit, by Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour, which has no director or any rehearsals,

On stage there is only a ladder, a table and a chair.

On the table, there are two glasses of water, a spoon, and an envelope containing the script. Actors walk on stage, pick up the envelope and read the script for the first time.

Redmond is celebrated for her work on both stage and screen from Perfect Days and Shadowing the Conqueror at the Traverse to television roles including Taggart, EastEnders and New Tricks. Jupitus is known as team captain on Never Mind The Buzzcocks and regular guest appearances on QI, while Bremner, best known for films Trainspotting, Black Hawk Down, Exodus and Match Point.

The play runs between Thursday and Saturday.
