Lost in the Desert
Spectacle Theater (124 S. 3rd St., Brooklyn)
The most amazing adventure a boy ever lived through!
Little eight year old Dirkie (Dirkie Uys) has a really bad cough, so his doctor recommends that he leave the city for awhile and get some fresh air in the open country. His father, a famous songwriter (played by Jamie Uys – the writer, director and actual father of the kid) sends Dirkie and his pet dog off in a tiny commuter plane, piloted by the kid’s own uncle. The uncle has a fatal heart attack while flying over the African desert and the plane goes down in the middle of it. Dirkie and his cute little doggie survive, but find themselves trapped in the middle of a dangerous wilderness.
