Our Review 5 / 5

The Turbine Theatre proudly presents Kevin Elyot’s award-winning comedy My Night with Reg in a dazzling new revival this summer, directed by Matt Ryan.

The play won the 1995 Olivier Award for Best Comedy after its transfer from the Royal Court's Theatre Upstairs to the West End's Criterion Theatre in its original run.

Set in Guy’s London flat, old friends and new gather to party through the night. This is the summer of 1985 and, for Guy and his circle, the world is about to change forever, thanks to the mounting AIDS crisis. This award winning comedy captures the fragility of friendship, happiness and life itself.
