oa Alternation - Social Concerns in Afrikaans Drama: 1930-1940

Volume 2, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1023-1757



This essay explores some of the complexities of Afrikaans drama in the period 1930-1940. The drama of the period was not characterised by any radical break with the past. Most plays continued the social realist and naturalist trends of the twenties. These plays are nevertheless interesting in terms of the portrayal of social concerns of the period. This article explores the aesthetics of the period as well as the themes of the poor whites, family and race.
