Set during a incredibly tumultuous period of the Afrikaner's development between 1914 and 1948, the story follows the lives of four young men - "Willem", "P.G.", "Gerhard" and "Bennie" over that period, and their involvement in and responses to a series of crucial events, including the 1914 Rebellion, the 1922 mine workers' rebellion, the depression of the 1930s, the uncertain times during World War II and the build-up to the infamous 1948 election.
KKNK theatre programme, 2009.
