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!
