Reviews of When in Doubt Say Darling in Durban — November 2018

 

Uys is an extraordinary performer with a huge heart. ...  He deals with many issues that are confronting communities at all levels in South Africa at the moment. You daren’t lose focus for a minute or you might miss a hilarious aside or sarcastic crack at a politician!

– Caroline Smart, Artsmart, 3 November 2018

 

Memories and mirth ... treat yourself, darlings!

– Billy Suter, sosuterbill.com, 2 November 2018

 

“When in Doubt, Say Darling” takes a side swipe at political correctness and reinforces Uys's standing as one of South Africa’s greatest artists. Whilst he is cutting in his portrayal of politicians antics, he is neither myopic, one sided or cruel : he tells it as it is.

Review of When in Doubt Say Darling in Cape Town — August 2018

 

**** CONSUMMATE entertainer that he is, Pieter-Dirk Uys has injected new life into tried-and-tested favourites of his repertoire — with an artful blend of the familiar and the fresh. The result is a sly, sweet, satirical farrago .

Reviews of When in Doubt Say Darling in Johannesburg — April 2018

 

An artist who has perfected his craft, Uys is a cultural gem, contributing immeasurably to the South African theatrical landscape.

– Peter Feldman, Artslink, 5 April 2018

 

With his wickedly twinkling eyes and formidably flexible face, Uys is bang up to date.

– Lesley Stones, Artslink, 5 April 2018

 

Strongly recommended. When in doubt, just buy a ticket.

– Leon van Nierop, What’s on in Joburg, 9 April 2018

 

Love him or hate him, watching Uys on a stage is always an experience.  All the more reason to see him live.
