PRESS: Pieter-Dirk Uys launches new show at Theatre On The Bay soon

Pieter Toerien Productions


WORLD PREMIERE: South African author, satirist, and social activist Pieter-Dirk Uys brings his latest show SELL-BY DATE to Pieter Toerien's Theatre On The Bay from Wednesday, 17 May until Saturday, 10 June 2023.

The show is called SELL-BY DATE and, as expected from his one-person performances, features not only the man himself, 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 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.

Tickets range from R150 - R250.

Duration: Approx' 90-minutes

No interval.

"This satirist, commentator and comedian still has it in spades!"


"Uys clearly has his finger on the pulse of the nation. He will get you giggling, while hitting you hard and making you think."


"Uys dons eyelashes, and presidents listen."

THE LA Times

"Sparing nobody and nothing, he reaches for the jugular in every context - but more entertaining than the sheer skill of characterisation and his ability to force you to laugh at your greatest fears, is the unique structure of this production."
