SkyPilot Theatre Company To Premier KONG: A GODDAMN THIRTY-FOOT GORILLA, 10/20 - 11/25
In 1933, an expedition set out for the Indian Ocean, in hopes of creating the greatest film ever made. Instead, they brought back a giant captive gorilla. This was a terrible idea. KONG: A GODDAMN THIRTY-FOOT GORILLA is a genre-bending deconstruction/parody of the classic King Kong story, with commentary on the 1933 film, audience participation, dinosaur fights, and a very large ape on a very small stage.
Director Jaime Robledo wrote and directed WATSON: THE LAST GREAT TALE OF THE LEGENDARY SHERLOCK HOLMES, for which he was nominated for an Ovation Award for Direction, won Best Comedy Direction at the L.A. Weekly Awards and a Saturn Award for Best Stage Production. He has also directed the Ovation Honors winning STONEFACE: THE RISE AND FALL AND RISE OF Buster Keaton, the Ovation Honors winning world premiere of Adam Szymkowicz’s Hearts Like Fists, the West Coast Premiere of Jennifer Haley’s Neighborhood 3:Requistion of Doom (Ovation Nominated) and the West Coast Premiere of Tallgrass Gothic.
