P. de Waal
P. de Waal (Pieter). (18**-19**) Church minister and playwright.
Brother of playwright J.H.H. de Waal, he wrote a farce, similar to his brother's 'n Les oor di Tier, for the CJV of Cape Town's Nieuwe Kerk (His play was later combined with that of his brother, to create a longer play called Die Selfsugtige Skoolmeester, possibly translated and performed as The Selfish Schoolteacher by the CJV of Warmwater near Oudtshoorn in 1914).
He later also wrote Die Bekeerde Jodin ("Converted Jewess"), a very popular play, often produced.
