De Verlorene Doos, of Het Loterymannetje

Jump to navigation Jump to search

De Verlorene Doos, of Het Loterymannetje ("The lost box, or the little lottery man") is the title of a Dutch one-act comedy, ostensibly by C.E. Boniface.

Occasionally Boniface published an advert in the South African Chronicle or De Zuid-Afrikaan announcing a number of titles for poems, prose works, and plays he intended publishing. This is one announced in 1825.

While these titles may simply have been meant as satirical commentary, F.C.L. Bosman argues that the texts may actually have been written, or Boniface fully intended to write them, but that they were never published and/or performed.

See Charles Etienne Boniface.
