Following a sell out season at London’s Donmar Warehouse, My Night With Reg transfers to the Apollo Theatre for a limited run from Saturday January 17th – Saturday April 11th 2015.

from the apollo:Kevin Elyot’s My Night With Reg is set in 1980’s London amid the gay community facing the escalating AIDS crisis. Following a group of gay friends though the highs and lows of their friendship, the play spans several years.   Told in just three scenes, all of the action of the play takes place in Guy’s London apartment. Guy is seemingly a lonely man with a secret crush on his good friend, John. The audience discovers that, whilst on holiday in Lanzarote, Guy had unprotected sex with a gay man who forced himself upon him.

The much discussed “Reg” is conspicuously absent throughout the play but is heavily discussed throughout, especially in the first scene – Guy’s flat warming party. Despite his absence, the audience learns a lot about the character, who is seemingly sleeping with all of Guy’s close friends, including his beloved John…

Whilst often funny, My Night with Reg is a moving tale of love, loss, friendship and an incurable disease. If it’s widely praised run at the Donmar Warehouse is anything to go by, this show is not to be missed.”
