Liefde en Geldsug
("Love and Avarice") by Hendrik Hanekom. A melodrama written hastily for his first professional company tour in 1925 when C.J. Langenhoven refused him the rights to his play Die Wêreld die Draai. Apparently he used D.P. du Toit's well-known Jaloesie en Liefde ("Jealousy and Love") as model. First performed by Die Afrikaanse Spelers in October 1925 in Pretoria, then went on tour of the Transvaal, in tandem with his farce Oom Gawerjal se Dogters en die Stemkoors ("Uncle Gawerjal's Daughters and the Election Fever").
