Wild & Fragrant

R100

Wild & Fragrant: “It does strange things to your mind, the Marico moon, and in your heart are wild and fragrant fancies…” Herman Charles Bosman.

Expect comical and witty storytelling through the mouth of a rather attractive, veldskoen-clad blonde ‘Oom Schalk’ as well as through the eyes of a whimsical (and often wicked!) veld maiden. A little romantic, a little wistful but of course touched with Bosman’s unmistakable irony, humour and wit.
Written, compiled and performed by Barbie Meyer. Directed by Bets Basson.

Running Time: 56 min

Bosman's Veld Maiden

R100

Bosman’s Veld Maiden: An intoxicating blend of humour, irony & wit. Alluring Marico ghosts, countless bottles of mampoer and elusive romances – both funny and enthralling - this is undoubtedly South African storytelling at its best!

Herman Charles Bosman’s hilarious stories are brought to life by the comical veld maiden herself – Barbie Meyer.

Written, compiled & performed by Barbie Meyer. Directed by Bets Basson.
Running Time: 60 min

Bosman & the Gallows

R100

Bosman in the Gallows: Powerful, witty, courageous and in places, just darn funny! This is Barbie Meyer at her best – performing the works of legendary SA writer Herman Charles Bosman.

Starting with a hilarious ‘lesson’ on prison slang - Barbie then begins the ‘real show’ as she calls it – an incredible journey based on the Bosman’s semi-autographical book ‘Cold Stone Jug’. This iconic book was written after HC Bosman spent time in prison for murdering his step-brother.

Written, performed and compiled by Barbie Meyer. Narrated by Jonathan Brauteseth. Directed by Bets Basson.

Running Time: 65 min

Willem Prinsloo's Peach Brandy

R100

Barbie is often asked which of Herman Charles Bosman’s short stories are her favourite. Well here it is! Set in the Groot Marico region of South Africa and spoken through the mouth of Oom Schalk Lourens. A love story of sorts where Schalk is bewitched by a pretty girl. Barbie’s timing is impeccable and her love for the words shines through every pause and snort! Directed by Marke Meyer.

Please note the running time is 28 min

Bosman's women

R100

Bosman’s Women: Three wives and a bohemian lifestyle – Herman Charles Bosman’s private life was decidedly thorny. Some called him a genius other called him a criminal but one certainty was that it was intoxicating being a Bosman woman – in or out of his stories!
