The original text
Performed "A L'Occasion De La Paix" ("Peace of Paris") in 1783. Published by the author, 1783.
Performances in South Africa
1804: There is a slight possibility that this may have been the play performed in the original French under the title Les trois Africaines by Het Fransche Liefhebbery Geselschap ("The French Amateur Company"), on 23 June 1804 (with Le Médecin Malgré Lui). The source for the 1804 production, F.C.L. Bosman (1928, p.90), unfortunately provides no details about the author or of the play's contents.
See Les Trois Africaines.
