A London revival of My Night With Reg will take place at the Turbine Theatre this summer. Kevin Elyot's award-winning comedy is at the Turbine Theatre from 21 July - 11 September.

Set in 1980s London, Guy invites old and new friends to his flat. The world changes forever, due to the mounting AIDS crisis. My Night with Reg premiered at the Royal Court in 1994, transferring to the West End and winning an Olivier Award for best comedy.

Casting includes Stephen K Amos as Benny, Paul Keating as Guy, Gerard McCarthy as Daniel, Alan Turkington as Bernie, Edward M Corrie as John and James Bradwell as Eric.

Speaking about the revival, artistic director Paul Taylor-Mills said: "'m beyond privileged that our first production to reopen The Turbine Theatre will be a revival of Kevin Elyot's seminal play My Night With Reg. This witty and poignant portrait of a moment in time remains relevant 27 years after its premiere and is without doubt one of my favourite plays. The work remains one of the most important gay plays ever written and is an intricate exploration of both the beauty and complexities of gay life and relationships and their position in society."

My Night With Reg is at the Turbine Theatre from 21 July - 11 September.
