Kevin Elyot's landmark play My Night with Reg tours across five venues in spring of 2020.

It opens at The Lowry's Quays Theatre in Salford for four performances January 23–25.

The cast are 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 as the flamboyant and Byronesque Daniel and newcomer Alan Lewis as insightful ingenue Eric. Joining this new cast will be returning Green Carnation Company cast member Simon Hallman as the lovesick and house-proud Guy.

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