Performance history in South Africa

1895: A play referred to as Uitgaan (Glanor) was twice performed in Pretoria in this year, probably by the Rederijkerskamer Onze Taal. (F.C.L. Bosman, 1980: p. 484, suggests this may have been a version of Ik Inviteer mijn Kolonel, but it was in fact an original Dutch play by Glanor - see the entry on Uitgaan.)
