’n historiese toneelstuk in drie bedrywe("In the days of Jan van Riebeeck") by Sannie Metelerkamp. A play about the founding father of the Cape Dutch settlement in 1652. It was joint winner of the Afrikaans section of the inaugural Krugersdorp Municipal Dramatic and Operatic Society (KMDOS) playwriting competition in 1932 (with Hantie kom Huistoe by P.W.S. Schumann.) There was some controversy about the award, since it had apparently first been written in English. Published in by Van Schaik in 1933.
