Pieter-Dirk Uys brings his new show SELL-BY DATE to Montecasino – featuring Tannie Evita Bezuidenhout and a host of your favourite characters!


Pieter-Dirk Uys: SELL-BY DATE

Pieter Toerien’s Montecasino Theatre 24 August – 10 September

Pieter-Dirk Uys’s new show at Pieter Toerien’s Montecasino theatre from 24 August to 10 September 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 retyre; retread!’ SELL-BY-DATE will also show Uys at his 77-year old best, bringing laughter to various states of disaster. As always, his political scriptwriters are not letting him down, even when the lights fade to black!

“Al die karakters is meer as spoke van die verlede. Van hulle dien om ons te herinner dat die geskiedenis liefs nie herhaal moet word nie. Dit is ‘n leerskool en ‘n oproep tot aksie. Uys besin ook oor satire en die funksie daarvan in ‘n tyd van politieke korrekheid en die kanseleer-kultuur. ‘n Eerlike en dapper kunstenaar wat verstarde denke steeds in ‘n ander rigting kan stuur, wat jou help om jou lewensuitkyk te verruim en met moed en humor te leef in hierdie land. Lank lewe PDU, hinkepink en al.” – Laetetia Pople
DIE BURGER 25.5.23

“And so PDU, our satirist extraordinaire, a lancer of our national boils chooses, after four decades of dressing up and dressing down leaders from PW Botha to Julius Malema, does probably the only think left to do: take off his own clothes! ‘Sell-by Date’ is a courageous, vulnerable, masterful performance by an actor who forms part of our cultural life and lexicon. There may have been a ‘best before’, but Pieter has no sell-by date!” – Steve Kretzmann THE CRITTER 21.5.23

“Bravo to PDU, South Africa’s treasured satirist, treading the boards at 77 and holding on to his crate of props and costumes for the show that beckons beyond the sell-by date. Bravo to Pieter-Dirk Uys and his truly unstoppable titanium Tannie Evita and for bringing his wonderful energy and satire to lift us out of ourselves.” – Robyn Cohen THE CAPE ROBYN 25.5.23

“In this dreary run-of-the-mill world, trust PDU to stir it up and remind us who we are and who we want to be – and who we never were. Brilliantly executed, sometimes funny, sometimes shocking, sometimes insensitive, sometimes displaying remarks which will make you wince, but you will never be bored.” – Greg Landman MAGIC GRAPE TOURS 20.5.23

“‘Sell-by Date’ is another piece of thought-provoking entertainment that will make you laugh out loud, created by probably one of the greatest satirists ever. Definitely worth seeing. I will never get over watching Uys transform on stage. His ability to make subtle alterations to his body language and his voice that completely change him into someone else before your eyes is magical.” Foeron Wheeler – BROADWAY WORLD 25.5.23
