The Fugard Theatre present Statements After an Arrest Under the Immorality Act at the Edinburgh Festival.  It is at the Assembly Hall from 2- 27 Aug 2012.

"Set in apartheid South Africa, where relationships across the colour bar were a criminal offence, a black man and a white woman meet secretly, in the library where the woman works, to make love and share their hopes and fears. They are eventually discovered, arrested and charged under the infamous Immorality Act. The play is a compelling and deeply moving love story in which the physically and emotionally naked lovers expose not only their bodies but also their deepest longings for personal and emotional freedom."

Statements After an Arrest Under the Immorality Act

Shaking The Tree Studio present Statements After an Arrest Under the Immorality Act from 5-15 Feb 2009.  The director is Samantha Van Der Merwe and the actors are Amanda Soden (Frieda), Shuhe Hawkins (Errol Philander) and Nathan Markiewicz (du Preez).

"Set in the small semi-desert town of Noupoort, in the Northern Cape, South Africa, 1965, the lens is sharpened and we focus in on Frieda Joubert and Errol Philander one year into their illicit affair. They are alone, in the dark, in the back office of the library where Frieda works as the small town's librarian. As they grapple with their fears and frustrations associated with their affair and ponder it's effects, who is outside their window grappling with a more insidious and perverse morality?"
