Oliver Reed: Wild Thing

Join legendary hellraiser Oliver Reed

In this blistering solo show, Oliver Reed shares his incredible life story. From the boyhood excitement of learning he was a descendant of Peter the Great, through the success of Oliver!, boozy adventures with Keith Moon and disastrous chat show appearances – this was a life well lived. Although Reed appeared an unstoppable force of nature, this is Malta in 1999, and time is fast running out. Rob Crouch brings Reed back to vivid life in this swaggering, brilliant entertainment. "Brilliantly realised, skilfully written and touchingly performed." ★★★★★ – British Theatre Guide "A drink-sozzled beast of a one-man show. It’s as exhilarating as a huge night out, with just the hint of a bitter aftertaste." ★★★★ – Time Out "A furiously funny, feisty and sad homage to Oliver Reed." ★★★★ – Metro "Crouch’s performance is a tour de force... a shrewd, sharp-eyed portrait." ★★★★ – The Times Over 14s only.
