Moedertaal ran at the Fugard Studio Theatre from the 14th of November to the 2nd of December 2017. Written and directed by Nico Scheepers and starring Sandra Prinsloo, it was presented by Naskrif Produksies at the Fugard Studio Theatre for a limited season.

It is a raw and moving journey through life, a tender story about love and compassion as told by ‘Nellie’, played by Prinsloo. Previously seen on stage at the Fugard Theater in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf and So Ry Miss Daisy, short award-winning icon Sandra Prinsloo needs no introduction. A Doyenne of the South African stage, she brings an unquenchable fire to every role that drags along, and Moedertaal was no different.
