Drakenstein, My Drakenstein!
The original text
Written in celebration of the centenary of the Franschhoek municipality, the farce dramatises the supposed discovery of oil in the Drakenstein-valley by the state-run enterprise Soekom ("search for it"), and uses this plot to satirise human weaknesses such as vanity, selfishness, avarice, and the like.
Published by Perskor in 1982.
