Never too naked : a thrilling tale of love, lust and life by Pieter-Dirk Uys( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Evita Bezuidenhout might be the most famous white woman in South Africa, but her younger sister Bambi, the blonde Afrikaans meisie who married a Nazi and became a stripper in the fleshpots of Europe, has a much juicier story to tell. In her autobiography, assisted by Pieter-Dirk Uys, Bambi traces her journey from the Orange Free State to Europe, South America, the USA and back to a democratic South Africa. On the way she gives haircuts to The Beatles in Hamburg, travels with Hemingway in Spain, and gets surgical tips from Chris Barnard. She also rubs shoulders with Ava Gardner and Marlene Dietrich, sups with Paraguay's dictator General Stroessner, and of course confronts her sister Evita. Peopled with showgirls, divas and film stars, Nazis, assassins and secret agents, Never too Naked is an outrageous and hilarious tale"--Publisher's web site

"For twenty- four hours in 1987, Sibi Makhale is allowed to visit her dying father in the maximum security prison of Robben Island. The daughter of banned parents, Sibi comes face to face with two suspicious and frightened white Afrikaans schoolteachers resident on the island. It will prove to be a life-changing experience for all of them. Over two decades later, Sibi returns to the island - now a World Heritage Site - with her two born -free sons. It is an attempt at closure for her, an adventure for her boys, and for the reader , a remarkable journey back from the dark past. Panorama celebrates the people who, through their shared passion for a beloved country, managed to communicate and even laugh with each other in spite of fear, guilt and prejudice. This story about South Africa's yesterday and today is inspired by Pieter-Dirk Uys's internationally acclaimed play of the same name." -- Publisher's note
MacBeki : a farce to be reckoned with by Pieter-Dirk Uys( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This contemporary tragi-comedy written and directed by Pieter-Dirk Uys is built wildly and loosely on Shakespeare's Macbeth, and tells the story of the rise and fall of MacBeki, a talented and gifted leader who is corrupted by the silver tongues of three witches, an over-reaching wife and a crown that seems there for the taking ... Other characters include recognizable but entirely fictional finance ministers, first democratic presidents, ministers of defence, police and health and a range of various other failed ministries
The merry wives of Zuma : a comedy about the state of the nation by Pieter-Dirk Uys( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Playwright's note: The success of MacBeki has inspired yet another PDU assault on the legacy of the greatest English dramatist in history. William Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor is not gifted with as obvious a guide track to local political farce as Macbeth was. There the eternal struggle of power versus leadership, of lust versus love, of good versus interesting lent itself well to the drama being played out on our political road to the ANC 2007 Congress in Polokwane. That lead to the in-house coup that said a loud 'Ta Ta' to Thabo and the exit of President Mbeki. The universal enjoyment of MacBeki at the Market Theatre from a rainbow South African audience of all ages and political persuasions made a theatre piece inspired by the many wives of President Jacob Zuma inevitable. But not easy. The Merry Wives of Windsor is a comedy of bad manners including love and marriage, jealousy and revenge, social class and wealth, explored with irony, sexual innuendo, sarcasm and stereotypical views of classes and nationalities. The text of the The Merry Wives of Zuma, not just a local version of the Shakespeare opus, is grounded in what could be seen as a comedy of bad moves. It was conceived and structured on the long winding road to Mangaung - the December 2012 ANC Congress where, as in Polokwane, the next leader of the ANC is elected. If Jacob Zuma wins a second term and stays the country's president till 2014, this play will also win a new breath of topicality till that general election. If not, the story can still stand on its feet, as it is not essentially about Jacob Zuma and his four wives. It is about a town in South Africa like so many towns, adjusting to a new name and local government of the people by the people, but not necessarily for the people. The mayor and his town council manipulate the ups and downs of municipal corruptions and eruptions. There is the intrigue of lust and love, the chess game of marriage and morality, of greedy fads and garish fashions. A rainbow of vibrant emotions, which is also a comedy about serious issues: freedom, opinion, commitment, transparency and truth, all bundled together as political pantomime
