Julian Ovenden to star in My Night With Reg at Donmar

The Donmar Warehouse has just announced its Autumn season with their Trainee Associate Director Robert Hastie directing the 20th anniversary production of Kevin Elyot's Olivier and Evening Standard award-winning play My Night With Reg. It is the first major revival of this play which runs from 31st July- 27th September.

The comedy is set in London's gay community in the summer of 1985 against the backdrop of the mounting AIDS crisis. 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, Kevin Elyot’s comedy captures the fragility of friendship, happiness and life itself.

The  production will star Julian Ovenden as John. He will be joined in the cast by Matt Bardock as Benny, Jonathan Broadbent as Guy, Richard Cant as Bernie, Lewis Reeves as Eric and Geoffrey Streatfeild as Daniel.

The production will be designed by  Peter McKintosh with lighting by Paul Pyant and Sound by Gregory Clarke.

Public booking for My Night With Reg  opens on 18th June
