Location: Evita se Perron, Darling

Contact: +27 22 492 3930 | [email protected]

Description: From DF Malan to JG Zuma It is 30 years since Pieter‑Dirk Uys started his total onslaught on politics with Adapt or Dye in 1981. Everything has changed so radically that some issues have become the same! Julius Malema’s recent outbursts have led to some citizens enquiring about emigration. An ANC spokesman added fuel to the fire by suggesting that ‘all cowards can go if they can’t take the future here’. Adapt or Fly! 1981 and today rollick hand‑in‑hand through the ups and downs of South African politics. It’s even funnier now, while it also still chills to the bone.

Meet those in our Rainbow Nation who will help us laugh at our fear of an unchartered future. Pieter‑Dirk Uys presents a celebration of free speech, an orgy of laughing at sacred cows, an embrace of being in a relatively healthy young democracy. Come and enjoy it all while it lasts. Every box holds a familiar secret! Every laugh is truly South African! A different show each time, depending on the choices of the audience, might force future thought‑police to buy tickets for each show, just in case a State Secret is let out of a box!August Events
