Adapt or Fly

1-26 October - Market Theatre, Johannesburg
Book at Computicket

Pieter-Dirk Uys started his one-man onslaught against politicians who should know better with Adapt or Dye in 1981. In October 2014 he is back on the same stage with Adapt or Fly, holding up the cracked mirror of satire to a twenty year-old democracy and using humour as his weapon of mass distraction. After successful seasons in Cape Town and Johannesburg during the last two years, and a run at the Soho Theatre in London, Uys is back with his finger on the pulse of a South Africa after an election that has already introduced the colour red into our black and white rainbow. Juju will join Evita, the gang of NP leaders and the cabal of ANC stalwarts in a show of strength that will put a healthy perspective on our fears and worries.

Evita se Perron interview
on RSG

This is the home of Tannie Evita Bezuidenhout, the most famous white woman in South Africa. It is at Evita se Perron in Darling that you can meet Tannie Evita as well as many of South Africa's most loved icons and loathed aikonas along with other respected and yet scandalous members of Evita Bezuidenhout's family.

The Venue

The name EVITA SE PERRON was inspired by its location as the former Darling Station.  Perron in Afrikaans means ‘station platform’ and Evita is also the name of South Africa’s most famous white woman …. Mrs Evita Bezuidenhout. Here Pieter-Dirk Uys performs his internationally-acclaimed shows on stage with Evita or with a cast of familiar political characters.
