    One thought on “My Night with Reg”

    1. Between reading Larry Kramer and then reading this work I'm beginning to believe I'll have no hope in finding a decent honorable gay guy to marry.My Night With Reg concerns 7 guys.

    2. It took a little while to get going but was marvellously enjoyable once it hit its stride. The fact that Reg is only ever referred to rather than seen is a classic theatrical idea but makes for a lot of nice, funny moments. The structure was spot on too.
