Só Moes die Liefde Ly
The original text
Written in 1988 at the request of Marina Rauch and the parish of the NG Kerk Panorama, near Cape Town, to be performed during Easter under the stars in Tygerberg.
In 1989, Fryer expanded the short text to a full-length work, which was then used for a biennial performance in the Cango Caves near Oudtshoorn, reviving a practice that had originally been instituted in the 1960s, but discontinued in 1964. The text would constantly be evolving over the years and the cast increasing, with audiences drawn from across the globe.
Thereafter performed every second year during the 1990s.
