Reviews of Sell-by Date in Johannesburg  — August-September 2023

Sell-by Date is up-to-the-minute political satire.

– Nicki Gules, Times Live, 25 August 2023

“Sell-By Date” is a masterclass in storytelling. A must-see for all theatre fans.

– Shaun Zietsman, The Something Guy, 25 August 2023

Uys' humour is clever, gentle, cheeky, and always pertinent. He is curious, witty, and razor-sharp. This is a courageous show and one which will leave the audience loving Pieter-Dirk Uys even more.

Reviews of Sell-by Date in Cape Town  — May-June 2023

A courageous, vulnerable, masterful performance by an actor who forms part of our cultural life and lexicon. ... Pieter has no sell-by date.

– Steve Kretzmann, The Critter, 21 May 2023

Bravo to Pieter-Dirk Uys and his truly unstoppable titanium Tannie Evita for bringing his wonderful energy and satire to lift us out of ourselves.

– Robyn Cohen, The Cape Robyn, 25 May 2023

Thought-provoking entertainment that will make you laugh out loud, created by probably one of the greatest satirists ever. Definitely worth seeing!
