Tiny motorbike theatre to stage King Kong

The world's smallest theatre, with room for an audience of just two, is to stage a version of King Kong.

The Grand Theatre of Lemmings is based in the sidecar of a Royal Enfield motorbike.

The theatre will bring its version of King Kong, which tells the story of a colossal gorilla, to Clacton in Essex on Wednesday. Alan Goggin, of Tendring District Council, urged those interested to arrive early to get a front row seat.

Although it can only accommodate two people inside, the theatre can open out for a larger audience. The Grand Theatre of Lemmings has been going for 29 years and has laid on shows as far afield as Japan and India.

They've definitely been around since the early 80's, as this video with a young Henry Kelly and pre-drunk Sarah Kennedy attests.


Did you get to sit inside?
