My Night With Reg at the Apollo

By Kevin Elyot

17 January 2015 - 11 April 2015

Following its critically-acclaimed sell-out season at the Donmar Warehouse, Kevin Elyot’s classic comedy transfers to the Apollo Theatre for 12 weeks only.

At 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. Deliciously funny and bittersweet, My Night with Reg perfectly captures the fragility of friendship, happiness and life itself.

On its premiere, Kevin Elyot's comedy won both Olivier and Evening Standard Awards. Donmar Associate Director Robert Hastie's 20th Anniversary revival was hailed by audiences and critics alike, confirming its status as a classic of modern British theatre.

Run time: 1 HOUR 55 MINS (NO INTERVAL)
