One of the world's smallest theatres - 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.
