The Front Door is a play by Erica Freund.

The play had a four-day showing at the Oval House Theatre, London, in 1994, directed by Astrid Hilne as part of the Women's Theatre Workshop's 'Out of the Attic' Festival. It focuses on the lives of Sophia February and Wilhelmina Pieters, women who support their families in the shanty towns by working as domestic servants for a white family in Cape Town. In The Front Door the author was very concerned about women's difficulty in bringing up their children in South Africa.


De Gay, Jane 1999.
