Pieter-Dirk Uys will be back at Pieter Toerien’s Theatre on The Bay from 17 to 10 June with a new show.
It is called SELL-BY DATE and, as expected from his one-person performances, features not only PDU but also a cluster of topical characters, male, female and political.
Being active in live theatre since the late 1960s, he is not surprised when people now ask: ‘When will you retire?’ His answer is short and sweet: ‘Not retire. Retread!’
This 2023 performance will also show Uys at his 77-year-old best: laughing at fears and embracing facts with his tongue firmly in your cheek.A sell-by date on food usually means: throw way.
A sell-buy date in Uys’ hands will reflect a new post-Covid energy that, while his audition might be over and the disease to please has been cured, proves that a PDU show is always a highlight to remember.
