The Man in an Orange Shirt

The Man in an Orange Shirt

Archant

This captivating drama from the makers of Broadchurch and Apple Tree Yard explores forbidden wartime love vividly contrasted with a present-day romance.

Written by best-selling author Patrick Gale, Man in an Orange Shirt features a cast of outstanding young actors alongside Oscar winning actress Vanessa Redgrave.

The story begins in southern Italy, in 1944. As chaos reigns around them, British army captain Michael Berryman meets war artist Thomas March. Despite having a young fiancée, Flora, straight-laced Michael finds himself falling for Thomas’ bohemian charms; their relationship, however, is made impossible by societal pressures.

Then in 2017: in a more accepting world, an ageing Flora looks on as her grandson Adam tentatively forms a relationship with his client Steve. But while the external obstacles have fallen away, a minefield of internalised issues and dangerous temptations still line the road to happiness and acceptance.
