Special offer – East Asian theatre in London

Next week an independent theatre company, Yellow Earth, which specialises in bringing East Asian theatre to the UK, will be putting on a new production at the Oval House Theatre in London (near Oval tube station in zone two).

One of our MA CCI students, Sasha Taylor (part-time year two), has been heavily involved in this production as part of her internship, and would very much like to encourage you to go along. There’s a special offer of two tickets for the price of one, advertised below.

The production is entitled Typhoon Live, and consists of two plays, Getting Married and Dogs, by playwrights from South Korea and Singapore respectively. It runs from Tuesday 9th to Saturday 13th, with a 7.45pm performance each day, and matinees on Thursday and Saturday afternoons. More details below.

Sasha comments: “I would be delighted if you could come along and support Yellow Earth and our fantastic new double-bill production. Do something different next week and feast your eyes on some great East Asian Theatre!! Two East Asian comedies about savagely falling in and out of love. The offer’s pretty good too…”

If anyone from MA CCI is going, please post a comment below to let others know which performance you’ll be attending – it would be nice to have a group outing!

  1. Thanks for this posting Ralph!

    I’m sorry not to have met very many of you yet…hopefully this will all change after the next CCI outing/event in the near future! I went to watch the opening night tonight and stayed rather late to clean up after the Gala reception… but the show was a delight, and without giving too much away if you like modern art you may enjoy the funky sets too (“Dali was my inspiration” Yoon Bae tells me, the set designer). I hope some of you can make it, and remember to claim your 2-for-1 offer by quoting “YETL” at Box Office.
