Ever since Fay Wray first charmed the great gorilla in the original 1933 film, King Kong has been a byword for epic cinema, challenging successive filmmakers to outdo the last with bigger and better special effects to impress and terrify audiences in equal measure. This comic staging in London takes a very different approach, as you’d expect from writer Daniel Clarkson (co-creator of worldwide hit Potted Potter) and director Owen Lewis, who between them have three Olivier Award nominations. With just five actors and no high-tech wizardry, Kong comes to new life for theatre audiences in the atmospheric surroundings of The Vaults tunnels beneath Waterloo Station.
Follow our intrepid cast as they journey to uncharted waters in search of the Eighth Wonder of the World--a gorilla so enormous he instils fear in all who set eyes on him. As hunter becomes hunted, our story takes us to the iconic skyline of New York and one burning question must be answered just how many bananas should we order in?
