Fee-Fa-Fo-Fum at Evita se Perron in Darling
For something a little different and just a short drive from Cape Town why not head into Darling to catch Fee-Fa-Fo-Fum a new production from Pieter-Dirk Uys at Evita se Perron. The show began its run on 16 June and will continue until 8 July 2010.
Mrs Evita Bezuidenhout has declared Evita se Perron a SoccerfreeZone and although the s-word will not be mentioned there is guaranteed laughter to be had. The show will be a selection of comedy sketches as only Pieter-Dirk Uys knows how. If you remember the fairytale Jack and the Beanstalk you may recall the words “Fee-fie-fo-fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman”, now this is what inspired the show.
It all begins with the story of Bafana and Sepp the Giant as well as an assortment of characters which include General Montgomery who is trying to create a plan to capture the Stadium on the Green Point Common… did I mention that this is a SoccerfreeZone?
Other characters who will have you laughing out loud are the Lady of the Night as she negotiates in all eleven official languages – or at least she attempts to; a Cockney hooligan and a resident Cape Town homeless person who is forcibly removed from his home at the foot of Signal Hill.
Pik Botha meanwhile is in Pretoria and seems to have misplaced his tickets and he hopes his Swiss contacts will be able to help him find them. You will also find out about a FIFA (Free-Information-For-All Survival Kit) shown to you by the always gracious Mrs Evita Bezuidenhout. With a farewell message from the sponsor Sepp the Giant you can only imagine the fun and games to be had in this show.
If you plan to spend some more time in the area over weekends you can also drop by for one of the other shows Elections and Erections, A Koeksuster for Zuma, Xmas in July and Icons & Aikona’s or take home a little piece of Evita for your own home with Mrs Bezuidenhout’s cookbook Evita’s se Kossie Sikelela.
For bookings you can telephone Beryl in the booking office on +27 (0)21 492-3930 and tickets cost R110 per person with R1 donated to the Darling Trust.
