Statements at the Fugard Theatre
« Reply #1 on: October 21, 2019, 11:32:28 PM »
Statements After an Arrest Under the Immorality Act is at the Fugard Theatre in South Africa to 26 Oct 2019.

"Written in 1972, Statements After an Arrest Under the Immorality Act is set in apartheid South Africa, where relationships across the colour bar were a criminal offence. Two lovers – a coloured man and white woman meet secretly in the library where the woman works to make love and share their hopes and fears. A neighbour reports them to the police who secretly photograph them from the informant's backyard and eventually break in and arrest the couple under the inhuman and universally pilloried 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."

The actors are Marlo Minnaar, Liezl de Kock and the voice of AndrĂ© Odendaal.  The director is Greg Karvellas.
