Pieter-Dirk Uys shares his wisdom

Most people have seen Tannie Evita; witnessed her interviewing several politicians; shaking hands with our dear Madiba; or just taking the mickey out of the current political situation. Few have met the man behind the woman: Pieter-Dirk Uys.
 
College Drama Workshop - Pieter-Dirk Uys webOakhill was the proud host to this phenomenal speaker and empowering presence when he addressed the future of South Africa – calling a spade a shovel!
Yes, they laughed with him poking fun at Eskom and the olden days when boys sat on one side during assemblies and girls on the other… Light was shed (no thanks to Eskom) on the little-known impacts of Apartheid on South African Theatre, the dreaded Census Board and the amazing sense of humour with which Madiba conquered his enemies – a reminder to all that “fun” is fundamental if you wish to succeed.
