It’s all at Evita se Perron
Visit Darling during December and see South Africa’s most famous white woman in action
DECEMBER is the perfect time to visit Darling in the Western Cape and spend a stress-free, hilarious few hours at Evita se Perron.
Pieter-Dirk Uys will present seven different shows during the festive month, covering everything from preelection satire to Reconciliation Day celebrations, Christmas magic and New Year predictions. • Tannie Evita Praat Kaktus — now in its 16th year, this revisionist history of South Africa (in English) is a must for any visitor and a delight for any local. • Desperate First Ladies sees Uys present a chorus line of characters, some real, some created and all inspired by the unique fact of four first ladies and a local political circus that takes the breath away. • Adapt or Fly shows the state of our nation 30 years after Uys’s first oneman show Adapt or Dye. It played to packed houses throughout South Africa, so if you missed it, here’s your chance to catch up with what happened yesterday. • Icons and Aikonas is a comedy specially written for the Perron and reflects those who were once leaders and those who are now statesmen.
Led by Tannie Evita who believes that we must know where we come from, so we can celebrate where we are going, characters include former Nats suffering from amnesia, Bennie the bergie with a mission to see Trevor Manuel as president, Winnie Mandela and her remarkable staying power as the Mother of the Nation, Nowell Fine confronting yet another kugel crisis, Mrs Mu- gabe singing her Bob’s praises, as well as a few new onslaughts against the battlements of Zuma’s Private Zulustan of Nkandlakosweti. • Tannie Evita’s Xmas Tree celebrates with Christmas cheer, funny hats, a song or two, and all the presents from Evita that our politicians expect or dread coming their way this festive season. • Evita Says Goodbye 2013 can be shared those few days before this year says a tired totsiens, and we have a peep across the auld lang syne to 2014.
Evita se Perron is the ideal place to take your loved ones as a birthday or Christmas treat, as a welcome home from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United States of America or Europe, or just for the fun of coming to a town called Darling to see South Africa’s most famous white woman in action.
