Kamphoer is based on the true story of Susan Nell, who during the Anglo-Boer War was raped and left for dead in the Winburg concentration camp. Many years later her path crosses with that of her rapist. Sandra Prinsloo plays the challenging role of Susan Nell in this one-woman drama, under the direction of multi-award winning, internationally acclaimed Lara Foot. The production won Best Debut Production at the 2019 Vrystaatse Kunstefees. The drama is based on the top selling debut novel, Kamphoer, by Francois Smith and the non-fiction work The Boer Whore by Nico Moolman. Smith’s novel won the ATKV Prose Prize, was nominated for the Jan Rabie Rapport Award and the English translation was short-listed for the 2018 Sunday Times Literature Prize.
