Statements After An Arrest Under the Immorality Act
July 21--August 12, 2017
by Athol Fugard

"Statements After an Arrest Under the Immorality Act" is a devastating love story about an interracial couple hiding their love in South Africa during the heights of apartheid.

Errol Philander, a black African and local principal, has been sneaking into the library at night for secret assignations with a white librarian, Frieda Joubert. We see them one night as they share their hopes and fears until they are discovered by police; Their love is illegal under apartheid and they are arrested. Fugard writes the second half of the play as a surreal poem - unwrapping the psychological effects of institutional racism and exposing the characters innermost fears.

Warning - Performance contains full frontal nudity, references to loving sexuality and fear of intimacy.

"Statements After An Arrest Under the Immorality Act" is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
