An audience with Pieter-Dirk Eish!DIVA PR
Uys brings his latest show to the Baxter Theatre at the end of October: An Audience with Pieter-Dirk Eish!
In our world of reality TV, breaking news, 400 television channels to surf through, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and SMS, choice has become the cherry on the cake of entertainment. Pieter-Dirk Uys will present his acclaimed new show, An Audience with Pieter-Dirk Eish!, nightly at the Baxter Theatre from 29 October, on the road to Mangaung.
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.
The show is 90 minutes in duration and runs Mondays to Saturdays at 8pm at the Baxter Theatre from 29 October to 17 November 2012. Tickets cost R100 for the previews on 29 and 30 October and the matinee on Wednesday November 14 at 3pm and R140 for all other performances. Booking is via Computicket and 0861 915 8000 with special discounts available for groups and schools on 021 680 3962 or 021 680 3993.
