The 20th anniversary revival of Kevin Elyot's My Night With Reg will transfer to the Apollo Theatre in January.

Following a recent sold-out run at the Donmar Warehouse, the 20th anniversary revival of Kevin Elyot's My Night With Reg will transfer to London's West End for a limited engagement.

Set in London against the backdrop of the mounting AIDS crisis, the play follows a group of gay men linked by friendship and sexual encounters.

Helmed by out director Robert Hastie, London's first major revival of My Night With Reg will begin January 17 and officially open January 23 at the Apollo Theatre, where it is scheduled to run through April 11.

The play, which premiered in London in 1994 and moved to the West End the following year, won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy. It opened off-Broadway in 1997 with a cast that included Maxwell Caulfield and Sam Trammell.

"At Guy's London flat, old friends and new gather to party through the night," read press notes about the new production. "This is the summer of 1985, and for Guy and his circle the world is about to change forever. Deliciously funny and bittersweet, My Night With Reg perfectly captures the fragility of friendship, happiness and life itself."

Donmar cast members Matt Bardock, Jonathan Broadbent, Richard Cant, Julian Ovenden, Lewis Reeves, and Geoffrey Streatfeild will all reprise their roles in the West End transfer. Elyot, who often explored gay issues in his work, died earlier this year.
