Statements After an Arrest Under the Immorality Act


It’s South Africa under an apartheid government. The Immorality Act of 1957 prohibited sex between a white person and a non-white person.    

A coloured* man and a white woman’s relationship is in a fragile state. They meet in secret, in the back of a library, until they are spotted by a neighbour who reports them. Exposed and vulnerable, an inspector shines a spotlight on their relationship, and we see their fight for respect, dignity and freedom.  

This is a powerful and moving play about love, heartbreak and fragility.
