Reed all about Rob’s show on Oliver

Derby Theatre is the venue for a one-off performance of Oliver Reed: Wild Thing, to take place on Thursday, February 7, starting at 7.30pm.

As the title suggests, the one-man show is a tribute show to the late, legendary actor and hellraiser, to be performed by Rob Crouch.

Join Crouch (in the guise of Reed) as he knocks back a few drinks and shares his incredible life story.

From the boyhood excitement of learning that he was a descendant of Peter The Great, through the success of Oliver! to 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 self-proclaimed ‘Wild Thing’.

Oliver Reed rose to fame for his mean and moody performances in the likes of Oliver!, Women In Love, The Devils and many more, including his final film role in Gladiator, but is also remembered vividly for memorable chat-show appearances on the likes of Aspel And Company, After Dark and The Word and for many tales of hellraising.
