Reviews of Evita Bezuidenhout and the Kaktus of Separate Development in Cape Town  — June 2017

 

Mordant satire, insightful political comment, brilliant topicality and whimsical, but intelligent humour — Uys at his ebullient best.

– Beverley Brommert, Cape Argus, 27 June 2017

 

Pieter-Dirk is on top form, a positive breathe of fresh air.

– Karen Rutter, Weekend Special, 24 June 2017

 

This Tannie will make you think, and think again!

– Barbara Loots, Theatre Scene Cape Town, 26 June 2017

 

Evita’s’s back in top form, sharp-witted and tenacious as ever, bubbling with barbed lines. ...  Another hilarious foray into our cultural spectrum.

– Benn Van Der Westhuizen, What’s on in Cape Town, 29 June 2017

Reviews of Evita Bezuidenhout and the Kaktus of Separate Development in Johannesburg  — May 2017

 

**** Just when you thought that Pieter-Dirk Uys couldn’t get funnier or more topical, or even sharper, along comes this. ... an absolute treasure. The show is brilliant!

– Leon van Nierop, Artslink, 26 May 2017

 

Evita  continues playing court jester with as much pizzazz and elegance as she’s done for over twenty years. But today, her bite is even sharper, and her focus more specifically honed.

– Robyn Sassen, My View, 26 May 2017

 

Evita’s as sharp and perceptive as ever.

– Jennifer de Klerk, Artslink, 29 May 2017

 

With the latest satirical pricks, to the latest political scandals blossoming around the world, Evita Bezuidenhout turns the mirror to South Africa with a subtle reflexivity that will light you up with laughter but break your heart all at the same time.
