MADURAI: Students of Madura College had a real break from academics on Tuesday afternoon when they were treated to a stunning performance by The Grand Theatre of Lemmings, UK.

Performing King Kong in what is claimed to be the smallest stage in the world at 5.5 X 6 feet, the troupe kept the audience spell bound for nearly one hour.

Cassie Catchpole was brilliant in his role as King Kong.

“It is the first time I am seeing a theatre group performing a movie (King Kong) more interestingly and humorously in the  smallest theatre form,” said Rajan, a film critic.

A student from a theatre school said, “Though we have street theatres in our country, the concept of small theatre is very innovative.”
