Stone Angel is a play by Kobus Moolman. The play weaves stories of past and present together, examining the interpretation of historical events, which have become folklore and national myths. It brings together Poppie, a presentday car guard at a Boer cemetery on a northern Natal battlefield, and a young Boer woman who died during the Second Anglo Boer War. The stone angel guards the grave of the Boer woman who tells a fascinating and tragic story. The play is in English and Afrikaans.
The play won the KZN regional finals of the Pansa Festival of Contemporary Theatre Reading of New Writings in Durban in 2007.
