Reggie’s Roaring Roadshow

Jump to navigation Jump to search

One-man play by Lionel Newton and Lara Foot (1993).


Reginald Visagie from Alberton is a regular guy with a family, two cars and a swimming pool. But he dreams of his name in lights like the big stars in America. With the help of a bottle of hard tack he ends up on the stage in the annual talent competition in the school hall and he performs a series of sketches about everyday South African life - like the search for a toilet in Hillbrow.
