The website’s Issues section features articles on matters of current concern to PDU, as well as bringing together both current and archival articles specifically relating to issues for which Pieter-Dirk Uys has long been an active campaigner — HIV and Aids awareness and education, freedom of speech and expression, and voter education and registration.


The website also includes an extensive collection of newspaper and magazine articles both by and about Pieter-Dirk Uys, as well as a collection of reviews of PDU’s plays and one-man shows. These archives of articles and reviews are a work in progress, with new material being added frequently.


Most importantly, the website currently includes the complete texts of twenty-five Pieter-Dirk Uys plays, as well as the first two volumes of Uys’s collection of one-man shows.  These play texts and one-man shows are presented free to all who wish to download and read them.  This is because so many students have requested access to these texts for the purpose of study and other educational use. However, all the plays and one-man shows are strictly protected by copyright and applications for performance rights, both professional and amateur, should be addressed to:


PD Uys Productions

productions@evita.co.za


But please read the plays and the one-man shows collections with pleasure. We hope to add further PDU play texts in future.  If there is a specific Pieter-Dirk Uys play that you would like to see included on the website, please send an email to the webmaster.
