''[[Eerzucht en Behoefte, of De Huwelyksscheiding uit Liefde]]'' ("Ambition and Want, or The Divorce through Love") is the title of a [[Dutch]] translation of a French tragedy in 3 acts. The origins appear a little uncertain in a number of ways.
#REDIRECT[[Der Opfer-Tod]]
According to Groot (2010, p. 56), this [[Dutch]] text was most a [[Dutch]] translation by Steenbergen van Goor of ''[[Honneur et Indigence, ou Le Divorce par Amour]]''  by Mathias Weiss and Joseph Patrat,  in its turn a French version of either August von Kotzebue's original 1796 tragedy ''[[Der Opfer-Tod]]'' or of his 1795 comedy  ''[[Armuth und Edelsinn]]''. 
== The original text ==
August von Kotzebue's German play ''[[Der Opfertod]]'' was first performed in 1796, and published by Johann Baptist Wallishauffer in 1798.
==Translations and adaptations==
The French version, ''[[Honneur et Indigence, ou Le Divorce par Amour]]'',    was first performed at the Théâtre de la Cité- Variété in 1803, and published by in Paris by Huet in the same year.
''[[Eerzucht en Behoefte, of De Huwelyksscheiding uit Liefde]]'', Steenbergen van Goor's [[Dutch]] translation of the French text, was apparently also performed and published in 1803. Confusingly, [[F.C.L. Bosman]] (1928, p.556 ) assigns the translation to H. Kup. However, no such translation can be traced.
== Performance history in South Africa ==
1815: Performed in Cape Town by [[Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pense]] on 26 September, followed by ''[[De Wanhoop van Jocrisse]]'' (Dorvigny). According to [[F.C.L. Bosman|Bosman]], (1928, p.556) ''Eerzucht en Behoefte'' was credited to a French version by Patrat (only).
