Pieter-Dirk Uys se jongste toneelstuk Hell is for whites only laat jou skater maar nie sonder 'n steekpyn en 'n traan so af en toe nie. Jy lag met deernis, jy lag omdat jy dinge uit jou eie milieu herken en jy lag vir die absurditeite van teenstrydighede in ons politieke bestel. Dit het 'n interessante, komiese perspektief wat 'n verdere dimensie aan Uys se werk verleen.

– Barrie Hough,  Beeld, 26 November 1981

 

Marvellously funny in Uys's typically raunchy irreverent way.

– Roy Christie, The Star, 26 November 1981

 

An interesting and entertaining work, if an uneven and unsatisfying one.

– Raeford Daniel, Rand Daily Mail, 25 November 1981
