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.
