Solide Menschen is a farce by A.D. van Buuren (Adriaan Diederik van Buuren, fl. 1870s?)

The original text

Probably written for the Rederijkers and published by J. Schuitemaker in Purmerende in 1868 and referred to as a "blijspel in één bedrijf".[1]

The only production in the Netherlands noted on the internet to date was in 1873, where Solide Menschen is described as a "Comieke chene" and performed by the society Onder Ons in Groenendijk, as part of their annual production.
