"Statements After An Arrest Under the Immorality Act" 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 strobe lights, full frontal nudity, low frequency sine waves, and 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.
