Pieter-Dirk Uys presents his acclaimed new show, An Audience with Pieter-Dirk Eish!, nightly at the Baxter Theatre from 29th October.
Every night is a different show, because the audience decides what they want. With the choice of fifteen boxes on stage, a member of the audience chooses a number. Out come the characters and an entertainment that could be either a drama, a comedy, a farce or a shocking expose. Every box holds a familiar secret! Every laugh truly South African! It could be Evita Bezuidenhout as a new ANC cadre, or Nowell Fine celebrating forty years in the public eye. Maybe a Malema in Gucci or chains, some Zumas married or not, one or two Mandelas, a Tutu, a PW or a Pik. What about Mother Theresa making sure that Jesus will only return if the ANC stays in power? Even a chorus line of former NP leaders chanting the old National anthem. A virtual Ha-Ha-History Channel.
Pieter-Dirk Uys presents a celebration of free speech, an orgy of laughing at sacred cows, an embrace of being in a relatively healthy young democracy. Come and enjoy it all while it lasts. A different show each night, depending on the choices of the audience, might force future thought-police to buy tickets for each show, just in case a State Secret is let out of a box! Meet those in our Rainbow Nation who will help us laugh at our fear of an unchartered future.
An Audience with Pieter-Dirk Eish! was a complete sell-out at the recent National Arts Festival in Grahamstown this year where it received rave reviews.
An Audience with Pieter-Dirk Eish! is 90 minutes long and runs Mondays to Saturdays at 8pm at the Baxter Theatre from 29th October to 17th November 2012.
Tickets cost R100 for the previews on 29th and 30th October and the matinee on Wednesday 14th at 3pm and R140 for all other performances.
Booking is via Computicket and 08619158000 with special discounts available for groups and schools on 021 680 3962 or 021 680 3993.
