Crazy Little Thing Called Love Comes to Worcester

Back to news listings

A comedy show about different types of love and relationships is sure to provide a night of uplifting entertainment for everyone.

Crazy Little Thing Called Love will be performed by the Kepow Theatre Company on Wednesday, October 7 at 7.30pm at the University of Worcester’s St John’s Campus.

Kevin Tomlinson stars in this completely improvised show, which looks at love in all its forms – romantic, platonic, love for a pet, a hobby, God and even money. Tomlinson charms with the warmth of his personality from the moment he comes on stage and gets the audience involved from the start.

The scenes performed are all unique to each venue as much of the show is based on suggestions made by the audience.

Mixing visual storytelling, costumes, acting, song lyrics from well-known songs and a few masks, the show offers a hilarious and heart-warming look at life.

Formed in 1991, Kepow are now one of Europe's leading improvisation and mask-based theatre companies and one of Britain's funniest. Over the past 21 years Kepow have produced 25 shows and have, in the process, won a 'clutch of awards' (Independent on Sunday) including the Sunday Times Playwright Award and the Rose Bruford Trust Directors Award; toured the world, including Canada, America, Hong Kong, Germany, Norway, and Holland; and worked with some of Britain's leading theatres and theatre companies: the National Theatre, the Royal Court Theatre and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre.

The show is brought to the University by Shindig, Worcestershire's programme of professional live performances in community venues, and is suitable for anyone over the age of 7.

Tickets cost £8.50 or £6.50 for students, pensioners and children under 18. For tickets call 01905 544444.
