Theatre: Yi Kang-baek’s Getting Married

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:

Oval House Theatre, 52-54 Kennington Oval, London SE11 5SW. Tel: 020 7582 0080. [email protected]
