A ROCKING good time is up for grabs next week when the musical masterpiece, Quadrophenia comes to town.

Fans of The Who will have the time of their lives as they are entertained by Peter Townshend’s sensational score. Those of us too young for 60s nostalgia can still enjoy a show that is bursting with belief and passion and energy.

Set in London and Brighton at the height of the Mod era, the story is told through the eyes of a hedonistic, style-conscious teenager battling with his various personas, the romantic, the lunatic, the tough guy and the hypocrite.

Recent Birmingham School of Acting graduate, Brennan Reece is scooting his way across the country with the rock-til-you-drop production. He said: “Most of the work I have done has been screen stuff, so it was a real shock being exposed to the energy of audiences, there are some real hardcore Who fans out there!”

His reaction comes as no surprise as reviewers so far have been astounded at the quality of the show, which one critic said, “will spit you out exhilarated, drained, but positively on fire”.

“Everyone is young and we have some great fun, I’m actually really enjoying seeing so much of Britain as well,” said Brennan.

The show is on at the Grand Theatre in Wolverhampton from Tuesday September 22 - Saturday 26. For tickets call the Box Office on 024 7655 3055.
