Kevin Elyot’s play will run at the Battersea based theatre from the 7th July until the 21st August.
The Turbine Theatre has announced that it will be presenting a production of Kevin Elyot’s award-winning dark comedy this Summer directed by Matt Ryan.
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.
The play won both the 1995 Olivier and Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy, after its premiere at the Royal Court and subsequent transfer to the West End.
This new revival is set to feature designs by Lee Newby and casting by Will Burton CDG. Casting and further creatives will be announced shortly.
Talking about the news of the new production Paul Taylor-Mills, Artistic Director, The Turbine Theatre said, “I’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.”
My Night with Reg will play at the Turbine Theatre from the 7th July until the 21st August.
