A.P. Herholdt (fl 1870s) was a Cape Town resident, an amateur actor and playwright.

Biography

He was living in Cape Town in the 1870s, possibly a notary public or lawyer.

Contribution to SA theatre, film, media and/or performance

According to Koch (footnote 1), Het Volksblad of 19 May 1877 mentions Heroldt as a member of the executive committee of the rederijkerskamer De Eendracht in Cape Town. He thus argues that Heroldt had probably also been a member of Aurora II.

Koch then cites Stassen (1957, p.113) who refers to Herholdt as the author of the play Broederhaat, of Het Einde van Een Booswicht (1875).
