Seven Ages (featuring Kevin Tomlinson) (KEPOW! Theatre Company)

By | Published on Saturday 17 August 2013

I must be missing something. I must be. Either that, or they’re slipping something into the drinks at The Caves. I genuinely can’t think of any other reason for an audience to greet such mediocrity with rapturous applause. Yet they did. The show consists of a series of semi-improvised sketches based on the seven ages of man, featuring lines from songs provided by the audience. As a short game in a longer, more varied improv show, it would work fine, but as an hour-long show it dragged, making the whole thing feel lazy and half hearted; there are many better improv shows out there. Tomlinson is a likeable performer, but the show is OK. Nothing more, nothing less. Just OK.

Just the Tonic at The Caves, until 25 Aug (not 13), 3.00pm.
