Celebrate the 20th anniversary of a modern theatre classic as My Night with Reg is brought to the stage at the Donmar Warehouse.
As well as being a huge hit with audiences and critics alike, the multi award-winning comedy by Kevin Elyot had a big influence on the lives of many gay men. The show is set in the summer of 1985 and follows the antics of a group of friends who gather at the flat of Guy. Determined to enjoy an all-night party, the group are happily unaware that the evening's events are going to change their lives forever.
A hysterical comedy of manners, morals and the gay scene of the 1980s, Elyot's influential work isn't afraid of weighty themes, with the issues of sexual promiscuity and the spread of HIV being vital to the plot. Contrasting light, witty moments with some dark drama and brilliantly subtle characterisation, this tale of the 1980s is a highly enjoyable celebration of the highs and lows of life.
