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