5 Male 4 Female

A crazy farce telling the tale of what happened in the hotel room next to the hotel room where Ann - played in the 1933 movie by Fay Wray - was whisked out of the bed and into the Manhattan night by King Kong

There's always a backstory ...

Myron Siegel is a low-end Broadway producer who desperately wants to be high end

Trouble is, he has, for his entire career, been sabotaged by his arch rival, who is ultra-famous for making movies about scary jungle creatures

That producer's father and Myron's father were also rivals back in the day

And the rivalry has lived on

As the play opens, Myron has just learned that the rival producer has booked a theatre directly across from the theatre where Myron's potential bonanza Foxy Felicia is about to open

Nobody on the Rialto knows what he's up to, but it's big

Really, really big!

Myron gathers his entourage - his sassy mother, his gangster henchman, his Hungarian backer and his wide-eyed niece straight off the bus from Buffalo - and concocts a plan to find out what the mystery show is all about

He discovers the show is about a monkey

A very large monkey

He also learns that the rival is sleeping with his wife and plans to steal both her and Foxy Felicia away from Myron

As the story unfolds, the seven doors on the set fly open and slam shut constantly

Add mistaken identitiy, pies in the face, deceit, underhandedness and even a couple of romances and you have all the ingredients of a crazy, fast-paced farce

And every moment is cleverly and meticulously coordinated with the events depicted in the 1933 movie

Unit set - Runs about 100 minutes


"Laughter abounds in this screwball comedy!" ~ Boston Metro

"Kong's Night Out is a reason to cheer! From the opening lines of a faux Walter Winchell doing a rapid-fire entertainment report to the soaring art deco set, we know we're firmly in '30s screwball comedy territory, with all the machine-gun line delivery, borderline corny jokes and slamming doors that entails" ~
