Orange Tree Theatre announce the full cast of Athol Fugard’s Statements After an Arrest Under the Immorality Act.
JMK Award Winner Diane Page directs Scarlett Brookes (Frieda), Richard Sutton (Detective Sergeant du Preez) and Shaq Taylor (Errol).
Orange Tree continues its partnership with The JMK Trust and provides Page the opportunity to direct a full-scale production that forms part of its Recovery Season, with the production values and nurturing guidance the building is famous for.
Statements After an Arrest Under the Immorality Act opens on 2 September, with previews from 28 August, and runs until 2 October. It will be livestreamed via OT on Screen on 23 and 24 September.
Frieda and Errol meet in darkness. Theirs is a love story that can never thrive in the light.
A relationship interrupted, by white supremacist law.
And then at the end as at the beginning, they will find you again.
A play about then that speaks to now.
Completing the creative team is Designer Niall McKeever, Lighting Designer Rajiv Pattani, and Sound Designer and Composer Esther Kehinde Ajayi.
