The list of actors who will star in the season of Nassim Soleimanpour's plays at the Bush Theatre has been announced.

The list of performers taking part in the pieces include Denise Gough, Dominic West, Mel Giedroyc, Paterson Joseph, Meera Syal, Scottee, Tim Crouch, Hari Dhillon, Kate Fleetwood, Deborah Frances-White, Josie Lawrence, Andi Osho, Vinay Patel and Mark Thomas.

In the Iranian theatre-maker Nassim Soleimanpour's plays, a different actor performs the text anew each night. The performance requires no rehearsals, it involves the actors reading the script for the first time live onstage.

Nassim won a Fringe First award at this year's Edinburgh Fringe and this runs as part of the retrospective alongside White Rabbit Red Rabbit, BLANK and new piece Cook. They are being performed in rep at the Bush Theatre over two weeks from 7 to 16 September. Read our review of Nassim here.
