In apartheid South Africa, where intimate interracial relationships are illegal, a black man and a white woman share more than just their love, baring all in the face of oppression and uncertainty. Athol Fugard’s Statements is a remarkable love story that stands as a strident reminder of the intolerance and cruelty of a not-so-distant past. Contains nudity.
Presented at New Repertory Theatre in Watertown, MA in association with the Boston Center for American Performance.
