Presented by The Everyman
Written and performed by Reggie from the Blackrock Road
Directed by Pat Kiernan
WORLD PREMIERE 9 Mar 2023 – The Everyman, Cork
8–19 MAR 2023
– The Everyman, Cork

Reggie from the Blackrock Road returned to The Everyman with a brand-new show, Reggie’s Guide to Social Climbing.

Cork’s most beautifully spoken millionaire went on a mission to help Ireland’s nouveau riche.

As he put it himself, “It’s one thing to make a lot of money or inherit it from your aunt in Coachford. It’s another thing to know how to spend it, not to mention how to behave around the crème de la crème. You don’t want to feel as awkward as a Tipperary woman in Brown Thomas.”

Reggie showed audiences how to eat, drink, flirt and behave as if they were a member of Cork’s One Per Cent. There were top tips on Posh Cycling and one lucky audience member had the chance to win a Masters Degree from BRISC, The Blackrock Road Institute of Social Climbing.
