About this event
Cost £8/£10

Charmingly offbeat and very funny, Boom is a warm exploration of what makes a home, and what makes us so attached to it once we've made the perfect one.

Singapore 2008. With the economy booming and the demand for land intense, the young, the old - and the dead - are forced to jostle for a space to call their own: a property developer's mother refuses to move from their family home to make way for his new and very profitable apartment block; whilst a psychic civil servant - charged with relocating a cemetery - has come up against the most stubborn corpse yet.

Boom was first developed as part of the Royal Court Theatre's International Residency in 2007.

Yellow Earth is an award-winning East Asian theatre company. Since 1995 it has been championing and touring the best of East Asian theatre from Britain and the Far East. Under the leadership of Co-Artistic Directors Philippe Cherbonnier and Jonathan Man, Yellow Earth creates world class touring theatre inspired by the dynamic between East Asian and Western cultures.
