The theatrical production Die Waterwyser will be presented in Afrikaans on the campus of University of the Free State.

It will be performed in the Scaena Theatre from Tuesday (19/09) until Saturday, 23 September.

The drama, which is a farce in Afrikaans written by Nico Luwes, is set in the time of the Great Depression.

It is on the farm Tweehasemeteenslagraakgegooifontein in the Moordenaarskaroo.

The three residents on the farm, Ouma Driedoring and her two daughters Anna and San, are trying their best to survive, all the time drinking “gaat” (home-made burnt coffee).

While drilling a borehole, their neighbour, Gert Laventel, cuts off the underground watercourse to their farm, leaving them without water.

In between wagers and intrigues, the question remains whether Willia Water will fall for the widow, Anna, or the spinster, San.

Or will the ostentatious Nelia Konsert succeed in winning his heart?

The comedy was previously performed by Truk with well-known actors Vall Donald-Bell, Sandra Ferreira, Helene Truter, Elzabé Zietsman, Johan Malherbe and Hannes Muller.

In her review in Beeld, Leatitia Pople praised the show as delightful entertainment.

Writer-director Luwes now again dishes up this pleasant comedy with drama students taking the stage.

Performance times are as follows:

19 September: 19:30;

20 September: 19:30;

21 September: 19:30;

22 September: 19:30; and

23 September: 10:30.

Tickets are available at Computicket.

Tickets cost R40 for adults, R30 for students and scholars and R25 for pensioners.
