My Night with Reg
Sat 22 Feb
‘As sparkly and lively as a pair of 80’s leggings.’
North West End
‘A well-crafted, well-acted piece which will leave you more than happy you’ve spent the night with Reg’
‘Tender, funny, heartbreaking, with a great cast.’
Russell T Davies
‘A beautifully written play that is very much of its time but still resonates today.’
British Theatre Guide
In 1985, in a London flat, old friends and lovers gather to celebrate new beginnings, yet their whole world is about to change…
Funny, sad and sweet, Kevin Elyot’s award-winning dark comedy play about the relationships of a group of gay men and their connections to the unseen yet magnetic Reg is a moving exploration of friendship, happiness and love, and their fragility in the shadow of the 1980’s AIDS crisis.
An evening of laughter, heartbreak and celebration, Elyot’s razor-sharp wit will be brought to life in a stunning, visual feast that captures the decadence, celebration and uncertainty of 1980’s London.
This show contains nudity and strong language.
Post-show talk on Fri 21 February.
