Statements After an Arrest Under the Immorality Act

by Athol Fugard
Directed by James A. Williams

February 19-21, 2015

A Man. A Woman. An officer of the law. In Athol Fugard’s Statements After An Arrest Under the Immorality Act set in apartheid South Africa where relationships across the color barrier are a criminal offense, the Man and the Woman debate their love for an hour, only to be caught in the act and interrogated.  The play is a compelling and deeply moving love story in which the lovers share their deepest longings for personal and emotional freedom.
