"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.
