About the Show Less...

Rob Crouch brings legendary actor Olivier Reed to life in a production that takes audiences on a journey from his boyhood excitement to the disastrous chat show appearances that gained him a reputation for his outrageous behaviour. Read More >

Written by Mike Davis and Rob Crouch, Oliver Reed: Wild Thing invites audiences to join legendary hell-raiser Oliver Reed as he knocks back drinks and shares his incredible life story, from the boyhood excitement of learning he was a descendant of Peter The Great, through the success of Oliver! to alcohol-fuelled adventures with Keith Moon and disastrous chat show appearances.

Set in Malta in 1999, when time is fast running out for the actor, the shows sees Crouch bring Reed back to life in an entertaining production, which is directed by Kate Bannister.

This show is suitable for ages 14 and older.
