A New Play by Mike Davis and Rob Crouch
Performed by Rob Crouch
Directed by Kate Bannister
In this blistering solo show, join legendary hellraiser Oliver Reed as he knocks back a few 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!, boozy adventures with Keith Moon and disastrous chat show appearances – this was a life well lived.
But though Ollie may appear an unstoppable force of nature, this is Malta in 1999, and time is fast running out for the ‘Wild Thing’. Rob Crouch brings Reed back to vivid life in this swaggering, brilliant evening of entertainment.
The show has toured the UK extensively including West End engagements at both the St James Theatre and the Ambassadors Theatre.
‘Brilliantly realised, skilfully written and touchingly performed.’

‘Rob Crouch not only resembles, sounds, scares and excites as Oliver Reed. He’s so convincing you feel like sharing a whisky with him afterwards…’
