Buitepos (Afrikaans for "Outpost") is Rachelle Greeff's second play, following the success of Die Naaimasjien.


About a man alone with his thoughts and his stones every afternoon in the dry riverbed outside the Karoo village Buitepos. And the women who chase him.

Buitepos trek ‘n vinger oor die snykant van stilswye. Dis ook ‘n sanksie vir die vergifnis – en die plesier – van die liefde.
