Die Boesman Venus
The original text
According to the programme, the play is set in Cape Town in the 1960s and was written by E.B. Dram. However, nothing further is known of the play nor of an author by that name. The piece is probably a devised work created by the students involved and the author's name a pseudonym for "Eind B.Dram" ("Final year B.Dram class").
