Pieter-Dirk Uys: The Echo of a Noise: Snap # 1

A moment from THE ECHO OF A NOISE

The mature Pieter-Dirk Uys will be on stage ‘unpowdered’ in his latest show opening on 31st May at Theatre on the Bay. But here is little Pietertjie Uys showing a hint of things to come? Me with a Grannie’s hat and a Grannie’s bag, ready to go shopping like any suburban housewife from Pinelands. My sister Tessa and I always enjoyed giving house-concerts on Sundays after lunch. We’d sing and dance, Tessa would play the piano and I would be silly. Then being cat-people, we’d collect coins from the parents and the grannies for the SPCA. When I had my appendix out at the St Joseph Memorial Hospital (now the Vincent Palotti), I fell in love with the lovely nurses who were also nuns. So the money (R3) collected on that next Sunday would go to them! Ouma Uys took back her coin in a huff. Nee, magtig, she was not going to support ‘die Katolieke Gevaar’!
