New tour announced for Kevin Elyot’s ‘My Night With Reg’

Kevin Elyot’s groundbreaking play My Night With Reg will embark on a new UK tour opening at the Lowry at Salford from 23 January 2020.

Funny, sad and sweet, Elyot’s comedy about the relationships of a group of gay men and their connections to the unseen yet magnetic Reg is a moving exploration of friendship, happiness and love, and their fragility in the shadow of the 1980s AIDS crisis.

The cast features Nicholas Anscombe (BBC’s Requiem, Bread & Roses Theatre’s Under The Radar) as privileged yet lost John; Steve Connolly as prowling Benny; Marc Geoffrey as long-suffering Bernie; David Gregan-Jones (Russell T Davies’ upcoming Boys with Channel 4) as the flamboyant and Byronesque Daniel, and newcomer Alan Lewis (a trained dancer and singer-songwriter) as the insightful ingenue Eric; and, Simon Hallman (also starring in Russell T Davies’ Boys) as the lovesick and house-proud Guy.

The production is produced by Green Carnation Company, a Manchester based theatre company dedicated to presenting quality theatre telling queer and LGBTQ+ stories.

Green Carnation Company’s two artistic directors Dan Jarvis and Dan Ellis will co-direct with designs by George Johnson-Leigh.

My Night With Reg opens at the Lowry at Salford from 23-25 January 2020, and will then travel to Hull Truck Theatre (13-15 February 2020), Huddersfield Lawrence Batley Theatre (20-22 February 2020), Durham Gala Theatre (5 March 2020) and Coventry Warwick Arts Centre (12-14 March 2020).
