Mal Hans (“Mad Hans”) An Afrikaans translation (by André Huguenet) of Dolle Hans: indo-drama in drie bedrijven by Jan Fabricius (1871-1964). Directed in 1931 by Huguenet in his first solo production, with himself and Rena la Roche in the leads, and under the patronage of Lord Clarendon, the governor-general of South Africa. A play about racial tensions in the Dutch army in the east and the relationship between a noble Indian/Dutch half-caste and a white woman. Not a popular choice of play for the times in South Africa.
