Summary: Adapted by Barney Simon from a short story by Nadine Gordimer, this film shows how an already fragile marriage is brought under further strain by something that affects the husband and wife differently. Carter (Wilson Dunster) and Lerice (Sandra Prinsloo) live on a smallholding outside Johannesburg. Having moved there to renew and strengthen their relationship, their equilibrium is disturbed by the news that an illegal immigrant - the brother of one of their farmhands - has died on their property. This is the beginning of a series of events in which Lerice becomes emotionally involved, whereas Carter is irritated both by the demands made upon him by his wife's growing concern for the black family and by the resultant need to question officialdom's handling of the affair. The story is told by the husband, whose slowly dawning comprehension may be too late

One day, Jack, the chief petrol attendant, reports that a customer has tried to pay in Zimbabwe dollars and asks her to speak to him. The young man introduces himself as Rick and, over the following few days, wins her trust. As the suspicious Jack observes her growing infatuation, Rick moves in with her and gradually reveals his true colours. Unable to extract herself from the relationship, she becomes increasingly desperate until a simple ruse by Jack seems to get rid of the intruder. In her letters to her daughter, Phyllis tells nothing of what has happened.

Barney Simon (1932'1995) was the legendary artistic director, writer, and co-creator ofthe Market Theatre in Johannesburg, one of the most influential and distinguished theatres in South Africa and the world. He workshopped, wrote, and directed unforgettable and pertinent plays in his quest to "hold a mirror up high to society." These works stand as a testament to South Africa's recent history. Here are 80 testaments from international artists about Barney's often mysterious creative process. Barney was especially known for his famous "orange exercise." Through a single orange,he communicated lessons ofdetail,care, and respect. With full-color illustrations throughout, this is an essential book for students and teachers of theatrical expression, and indeed for anyone who strives to understand their own voice. With the passing of a decade of democracy in South Africa, The World in an Orange is a record of the last years of apartheid and the role of the arts community in bringing it down
