"Impossible not to fall for likeable Kevin Tomlinson and his engaging Shakespeare-inspired theatre show 'Seven Ages'...packed houses and audience adored...genuine popular theatre, that will definitely sell out"  Lyn Gardner of The Guardian

He co-founded KEPOW THEATRE COMPANY in 1991 with Paul Jenkins; whilst they were both studying Drama at the University of Hull. Together - with the help of Abi Hood - they have turned KEPOW! into one of Britain's leading mask and improvisation-based theatre companies. See video clips below and the website:
