“South Africa for many of us in the US was one of the major issues for the activist generation post Viet Nam. There were many South African expats that we were friends with, especially in the medical field. Nelson Mandela when he came to Boston after liberation and spoke from the Hatch shell on the Esplanade acknowledged the role that people of Boston in supporting his struggle. It was great to attend your performance to get news of a country that I feel I was long involved in but never visited, and maybe find ways to reconnect to South Africa’s present trials. My wife had a grueling work week, and your performance was just great medicine.” -Stuart A

“I think it’s amazing that [Pieter] has devoted his life to bringing awareness of the plight of people in So Africa to everyone. I think he is very brave and courageous to have done this…My friends and I know people from South Africa or that have lived and worked in South Africa who have told us what a beautiful country it is. The temporary visitors were aware of the continuing problems there but not to the extent that Pieter-Dirk Uys reported. The people who were known to have lived there defended the way of life, which was very interesting.” – Happy theatre-goer

“I was glad to have the opportunity to say it directly to [Pieter] during the brief book-signing afterwards. He is marvelous: witty and courageous. Is there such a thing as barbed pathos? I brought a friend from Europe, who so appreciated his takes on America. Thanks for the cabaret style seating–that was comfortable and different.” -Anara

“I loved the show. I think Pieter is a fantastic artist, mimic, and comic. I was especially interested since I am in a class about Modern South African history and the production spoke to many of the issues we have been discussing.” -Graydon G.
