Two love stories, 60 years apart, chart the changes and challenges in gay lives in England—from the era of jail terms to the onset of dating apps. Vanessa Redgrave stars in this drama scripted by best-selling novelist Patrick Gale.

Joining Redgrave are Joanna Vanderham (The Paradise), Laura Carmichael (Downton Abbey), Julian Sands (A Room with a View), Frances de la Tour (The Collection), Adrian Schiller (Victoria, Beauty and the Beast), and Joanna David (Rebecca).

Man in an Orange Shirt was broadcast to wide acclaim in the UK in 2017 for the fiftieth anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexuality. The Guardian (London) wrote, “Man in an Orange Shirt does a beautiful job of showing the consequences of repression for all during this time of upheaval.”
