[archive] The Marriage of Kim K

NOTE: This page is for the 2016 Off the Page production of Marriage of Kim K. For the revised leo&hyde production, click here.

An Off the Page production; March 2016 @ Keble O’Reilly Theatre, Oxford


In March 2016, I directed the premiere of leoemercer’s exciting new opera, The Marriage of Kim K. The show was an Oxford University student production, produced by Off the Page Productions.

See below for information about the show, video clips and picture gallery. You can watch our trailer here:

“This play was a triumph… on a par with the sorts of things I have seen on the Olivier stage at the National Theatre”
“Clem Faux’s score was absolutely brilliant… leoemercer’s libretto was light, silly, funny, but also charmingly poignant… All in all a fantastic production, play and cast”
VERSA (review)

“Amazing… one of the most exciting pieces of new writing seen in Oxford in a long time”
“It is rare to see opera that achieves something as exciting as this one”
“leoemercer and Clem Faux’s writing works incredibly well conceptually… their achievement is staggering”
Oxford Student (review)

“a remarkably imaginative and lovingly constructed piece of theatre… it is hard to escape the feeling that something genuinely new has been created here”
“The production is a feat that deserves great credit… technically [it] was very impressive and was pulled off to an exceptional standard”
Cherwell (review)

“The Marriage of Kim K runs the gamut of emotion, from joy to despair to anger and back again… it’s got the raw ingredients of the best play Oxford’s ever done”
