Waai, Westewind (“Blow, west wind”) is an Afrikaans one-act play by W.A. de Klerk (1917-1996).

The original text

First staged as Waai Westewind Waai, this short work can thematically be seen a precursor for his award-winning full-length play Die Jaar van die Vuuros (1952).

First published as Waai, Westewind in F.C.L. Bosman's Vier Uitgesoekte Eenbedrywe ("Four selected one-act plays") in 1950 by Afrikaanse Persboekhandel.
