When In Doubt Say Darling: An entertainment with Pieter-Dirk Uys and other darlings
A new show about forgetting, forgiving, remembering, faking, making up and doing.
Sometimes politics repeats itself, not only taking history and turning it into farce,
but taking farce and turning into the fake news that is now called entertainment.
Pieter-Dirk Uys is sorting out 40 years of distress, disguise and disgust: from apartheid
to tripartite, from amandla to Nkandla. Wigs, glasses, wagging fingers, toyi-toyis,
red berets, trump cards of madness, icons and aikonas. From Bezuidenhouts, Raubenheimers
and Ramaphosas to Alzheimers.
At a time when a casual greeting or embrace can be seen as racist or harassment,
the advice is simple: when in doubt say darling.
• If you can’t remember their names, just say darling.
• If you get lost along the road to somewhere, simply ask for Darling.
• He did it, and now Pieter-Dirk Uys also lives in Darling.
Join him and many darlings on an exciting walk to the edge of the next cliff when
the end of the world seems nigh. It used to be called a sunset. Here’s a secret:
the sun will also rise tomorrow, darling.
