Overstrand Executive Mayor, Dr Annelie Rabie, extended her congratulations to Jolyn Phillips who received the Kunste Onbeperk Prize for a Young Voice at this year’s Klein Karoo National Arts Festival (KKNK).
Jolyn was debuting her first play, based on her award-winning book, Bientang, at the KKNK. She has written the script, stars in it, produced it and contributed to the music with the assistance from Frazer Barry, Deniel Barry (who lives in Kleinmond) and Charlton George.
Jolyn, who matriculated at Hoërskool Emil Weder and originally from Gansbaai, is currently lecturing at the University of Johannesburg.
Bientang: Bloedspoor/!nau will also be showcased at the Suidooster Festival later this year.
