Pieter Dirk Uys, 2023 Legacy Award recipient, will be back at FynArts on 11 June with a new show. As expected from his one-person performances, this show features not only PDU, but also a cluster of topical characters, male, female and political. Having been 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 PDU’s 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.
