Rozella en Guido, of Het Regt der Natuur is a four-act Dutch comedy by Marten Westerman (1775-1852)[1].

Also written Rosella en Guido, of Het Regt der Natuur[2] or Rozella en Guido, of Het Recht der Natuur (Bosman, 1980).

The original text

Worp (1907: p. 351)[3], classifies the play as a Dutch example of a comédie larmoyante[4]. It was first published in Amsterdam by M. Westerman in 1801 (as Rosella en Guido, of Het Regt der Natuur) and by J.C. van Kesteren, 1802 (as Rozella en Guido, of Het Regt der Natuur).

Performance history in South Africa

1853: Performed as Rozella en Guido, of Het Recht der Natuur by Door Yver Bloeit de Kunst in the Bree Street Theatre, Cape Town on 28 April ( repeated on 3 May). The afterpiece was De Lotery Prys, of No. 2,5,3,8, (Hoare). The company wrongly claims - at least in the case of De Lotery Prys - that "Beide Stukken zullen voor de eerste maal op het Kaapsch Tooneel vertoond worden" (i.e. "the two works are seen on the Cape stage for the first time").
