The brand-new parody of King Kong, written by Potted Potter‘s Daniel Clarkson, has officially premiered this week at The Vaults. As reviews from the Mates start rolling in, and Mates co-founder Terri Paddock prepares to host an exclusive post-show Q&A with Clarkson and the cast next week, here are a collection of social media interviews we filmed in the King Kong rehearsal room we think you’ll enjoy.
What was the inspiration? How does King Kong differ from Potted Potter? Why didn’t Dan want to cast himself in the show? How do you stage such an epic story with a cast of just five? How many bananas do they get through? And why should you see Matilda this summer… oops!
King Kong interviews playlist
In 80 fast-paced minutes, directed by Owen Lewis, follow the intrepid cast of King Kong – Benjamin Chamberlain, Rob Crouch, Sam Donnelly, Alix Dunmore and Brendan Murphy – 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 the hunted, the story journeys to the iconic skyline of New York City where one burning question must be answered: just how many bananas should we order in?
King Kong runs at The Vaults until 27 August 2017 only. Terri Paddock hosts a free post-show Q&A after the 7.30 performance on Thursday 13 July 2017. Got any questions of your own?
