My Night With Reg
My Night With Reg
Olivier Award: Best Comedy

London Evening Standard Award

Critics' Circle Award

Writer's Guild of Great Britain Award
By Kevin Elyot.

Cast: 6m. "A sharply witty and humanely wise drama about gay manners and morals in the age of AIDS." (Independent, London). Originally produced at the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, then in the West End, My Night With Reg won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy. A tragicomedy of gay manners set in London, England, during the latter half of the eighties, this play explores the sexual foibles and desires of a group of friends in the ever-looming shadow of AIDS. "One of the major ironies of [the play] is that Reg never actually reaches the stage, let alone The Big Chill-style flat-warming party hosted by Guy for his charismatic, gay, old college friends [but] Guy finds himself the target of his friends' clandestine confessions. It seems the late Reg was unusually generous with his sexual favours. As the play slips disconcertingly forward in time…we see the loaded consequences of such generosity. Bursts of nostalgia are diluted by naked fear as an almost Agatha Christie like suspense shrouds those who succumbed to Reg." (Time Out) In addition to the Olivier Award, My Night With Reg won the London Evening Standard Award, as well as awards from the Critics' Circle and the Writers' Guild of Great Britain. One int. set. Approximate Running Time: 1 hour, 45 minutes.
