First production images have been released of monstrous new comedy King Kong, ahead of its world premiere next week.

The iconic tale has been re-imagined by Daniel Clarkson, co-creator of international hit show Potted Potter, and director Owen Lewis in a comical new staging with just 5 actors and no high-tech wizardry.

The cast features Benjamin Chamberlain (It’s a Wonderful Life, UK tour), Rob Crouch (Oliver Reed: Wild Thing, St James Theatre), Sam Donnelly, Alix Dunmore (The 39 Steps, West End), and Brendan Murphy (Potted Potter).

King Kong runs from 22 June 2017 until 27 August at The Vaults, in Waterloo, London.
