King Kong (A Comedy) – The Vaults, London

Writer: Daniel Clarkson Director: Owen Lewis Reviewer: Saoirse Anton With eight films released since 1933, and another planned, King Kong has been a cinematic stalwart for over eight decades.

Writers: Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, Henry Shields Director: Adam Meggido Reviewer: Dan English   Have you ever been to an am-dram sham? A play that has been so desperately bad, that you have had to try and shield your laughter throughout, so not to offend the actors?
