Pieter-Dirk Uysis a South African comedic treasure. He made his name poking fun at the absurdities of the Apartheid government, and has been blessed with equally ridiculous material from the present regime. He specialises is using masks and makeup to impersonate character, both real and imaginary, including Evita Bezuidenhout, a strong women a la Barry Humphries, who has been around long enough to seem like a real person.
Every night there is a different show, the audience deciding what they want. 15 boxes on stage, a member of the audience chooses a number. In the box are some characters and an entertainment that could be either a drama, a comedy, a farce or a shocking expose.
Warning - the show is very South African, and may puzzle those not familiar with our landscape.
The show was a great hit at the last National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, and is now on tour.
