After a 10-year break, the legendary South African satirist, author and activist Pieter-Dirk Uys returns to Soho.
In a world filled with satellite TV, NetFlix and YouTube, choice has become the cherry on the cake of entertainment. But the choice offered by satirist Pieter-Dirk Uys is more unusual: it begins with fifteen boxes on a stage in deepest Soho…
Each box is filled with different characters and stories, from the comedic to the theatrical, all ready to launch into a bitingly funny and fast-paced satire on South Africa’s turbulent political history. Some hark back to the country’s dark past, most try to make sense of South Africa’s crazy future, and all showcase the knowledge (and humour) gathered during Pieter-Dirk’s 38 years in the political and comedy arenas.
Each night the audience chooses which boxes Pieter-Dirk opens, so no two shows are ever the same. Whatever emerges, Uys’ uncanny ability to recreate South African politicians and to breathe life into their absurdities is guaranteed to evoke entertaining and provocative hilarity.
