Wynberg’s staff work hard and in order to continue to do so it is important for all of them to find the time to be inspired and refreshed.

The Afrikaans department decided to attend a performance of Die Laaste Karretjiegraf by Riana Steyn and Athol Fugard at the Fugard theatre this past Saturday afternoon to do just that.

The incredibly honest and harrowing story of a family of travelling farmworkers in the Karoo left them all reeling with emotion. The plot is simple yet deeply complex and incredibly touching. The language is poetic and the storytelling phenomanal. Though in Afrikaans, the plot is easily accessible and the subtitles easy to follow for second language speakers.

It would be a pity for anyone to miss out on this incredible piece of theatre.

Thank you to Mrs. de Waal for organising this outing.
