A new show about forgetting, forgiving, remembering, faking, making-up and
“WHEN IN DOUBT SAY DARLING.”
An entertainment with Pieter-Dirk Uys and other darlings.
Sometimes politics repeats itself, not only taking history and turning it
into farce, but taking farce and turning into the fake news which is now
Pieter-Dirk Uys is sorting out 40 years of distress, disguise and disgust:
from apartheid to tripartite, from amandla to Nkandla.
Wigs, glasses, wagging fingers, toyi-toyis, red berets, trump cards of
madness, icons and aikonas.
From Bezuidenhouts, Raubenheimers and Ramaphosas to Altzheimers.
At a time when a casual greeting or embrace can be seen as racist or
harassment, the advice is simple: when in doubt say darling.
If you can’t remember their names, just say darling.
If you get lost along the road to somewhere, simply ask for Darling.
He did it, and now Pieter-Dirk Uys also lives in Darling.
Join him and many darlings on an exciting walk to the edge of the next cliff
when the end of the world seems nigh.
It used to be called a sunset. Here’s a secret: the sun will also rise
