My Night With Reg

My Night With Reg

Apollo Theatre · 03 FEB - 11 APR

Following a group of gay friends though the highs and lows of their friendship

Overview

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…
