Top Evita Bezuidenhout quotes (win tickets to Pieter’s life story)

One of the most famous “ladies in politics” , Evita Bezuidenhout, is in town and you get to meet the man behind the legend. Pieter Dirk Uys (the theatre icon) is ready to share his life story and you can win tickets to this – sure to be side splitting – event.

Uys is bringing two of his solo shows to Port Elizabeth this week, starting with Evita Bezuidenhout and the Kaktus of Separate Development from Thursday February 22 to 24, followed by Echo of a Noise from Monday February 26 to 28.

The character of Tannie Evita has been part of South Africa’s theatrical landscape since 1981 and Uys says this former apartheid ambassador in the Homeland of Bapetikosweti is now ensconced in the kitchens of Luthuli House where she cooks for reconciliation.

In Echo of a Noise the audience sees a more personal side to Uys.(This is the show I am giving away tickets to) but before giving you a chance to win, here are a few of my favourite Tannie Evita tweets:

  • Forgive my twitter silence yesterday but I was busy feeding all the ex-Zuma bodyguards who weren’t needed. A full-time job. Happy days ahead!

  • This urgent press conference is like watching paint dry and then realizing that you don’t even like the colour.

  • Every drought might have a silver lining. I’m captivated by 50 shades of grey water!

  • New political hashtag for all our usual suspects:

  • Fight this culture of sexual harassment. They kiss? You tell! (And then there’s always that half-a-brick in your handbag!)

  • My grandchildren say I must tell you that I am turning 82 tomorrow! No, I won’t!

  • A white family enters through the front door while the black family leaves by the back. We once called that forced removals .

You can win a set of double tickets to Monday’s show at  7.30pm at The Atheneum – Echo of a Noise (His life story)
