Contribution to SA theatre, film, media and/or performance
In 1980s she was sponsored by DALRO to write the history of FATSSA and amateur theatre. While this was not ever published, there is a manuscript in the National Archives (former CESAT Holdings). NELM also holds a copy of this work (When the Amateurs Stole the Show: the story of FATSSA: the Federation of Amateur Theatrical Societies of Southern Africa ). She did publish an article on FATSSA for a book in honour of P.P.B. Breytenbach (The Breytie Book, edited by Temple Hauptfleisch, 1985).
