Yellow Earth, who last year brought us David Tse Ka-shing’s version of King Lear, comes to the Oval House bringing a double bill of East Asian short plays. Coupled with Dogs, by Elangovan (from Singapore), is Getting Married by Yi Kang-baek.
by Yi Kang-baek
A young swindler is looking for love. He has borrowed a big house for the weekend, a suit for the day and he might ask you for a cigarette. When a charming, innocent woman enters, will they find love before the grim butler lurking in the shadows calls time?
A light-hearted, surreal fable from South Korea’s Daesan Award winner.
At the Oval House, 9 – 13 October.
The Oval House Theatre is situated behind Oval tube station, on Kennington Oval, opposite the famous cricket ground:
