'Wild Thing' or 'One hell of a mad night out.'
‘Oliver Reed: Wild Thing’, Mike Davis and Rob CrouchSt James Theatre, 1st August 2013
Written for Time Out
A man in a giant gorilla suit bounds on stage, beats his chest, grabs a beer and drinks. This is Oliver Reed: larger than life, hugely entertaining and almost always on the lash. ‘Wild Thing’ is 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.
