Outcast is the title given for an otherwise unknown play, performed in South Africa in 1919 by a touring company.

Hilda Attenboro was one of the cast members and it was most probably done by the company headed by Claude Dampier and his wife, Irene Vere, active in the region from 1917 to 1921.

The play may have been a version of A Noble Outcast, a drama in four acts by John Arthur Fraser (1838-1898), a work based on Jocrisse the Juggler a drama in three acts by Thomas William Robertson (first performed at the Adelphi Theatre, London, in 1860, published by T.H. Lacy in 1861). Fraser's play - itself an adaptation of a French play - was first performed in 1888 and published in Chicago by the Dramatic Publishing Company in 1896 (Sergel's acting drama, no. 429).
