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.

Guilty.
