The bubbly will be opened, special tickets will be sold and money will be raised for a pair of well deserving charities as the hit London production of My Night With Reg celebrates the seminal play’s 21st birthday.
To celebrate the acclaimed West End play’s coming of age, audiences who see the show in its birthday week (30 March to 4 April) will enjoy a free glass of fizz with the show.
They’ll also have a chance to give a little back, as staff at the Apollo Theatre, where My Night With Reg has been playing since it transferred from the Donmar Warehouse in January, will be shaking buckets in the hope they can spare a little change. All the money collected will go to the Ian Charleson Day Centre at the Royal Free hospital and Maggie Centres for Cancer support. The money will be sent in memory of the play’s writer Kevin Elyot, who died just before the revival took to the stage of the Donmar Warehouse last year.
Elyot’s play premiered at the Royal Court Theatre on 31 March 1994. Set in the mid-80s against the backdrop of the growing AIDS crisis, it follows six friends as they come and go, meet and disappear from Guy’s London flat. The bittersweet comedy about love, friendship and life went on to win the Olivier Award for Best Comedy.
Theatre fans yet to buy tickets for the acclaimed revival of My Night With Reg might be able to take advantage of 21 specially priced £21 tickets which were released for all performances in birthday week earlier today. If, however, those tickets have already been snapped up, or you fancy seeing the show in a different week, you can still purchase normally priced tickets from us here. Be quick, the show ends its London run on 11 April.
