Pieter Dirk Uys – Adapt or Fly

Pieter Dirk Uys will be remembered for his first one-man show which opened on April Fools Day 1981 – Adapt or Dye. “Adapt or die” was said by Prime Minister P. W. Botha, when he announced his proposed revisions of apartheid policies as a prelude to the 1981 General Election which was still for whites only.

2012 will see Pieter-Dirk Uys close the bracket with a new onslaught against a politically-correct regime with Adapt or Fly, a look at 18 years since Apartheid ended and the funny side of the new leaders in South Africa.

Everything in the country has changed and yet some things seem to stay the same. Poverty, violence, crime, corruption and fear are still rife makeing this a cakewalk for the quick witted Uys.
