Ou Blare

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Ou Blare (Afrikaans for "Old Biddies", literally "Old Leaves") is a comedy play for three women written by Leon Kruger.


Three middle-aged ladies, good friends for many years, get together to recharge their batteries. They are brave, eccentric and also fed-up. In between yoga and sips they vent about car guards, reed thin mannequins, head docters and thongs.
