The Final of Man In An Orange Shirt
The final of Man In The Orange Shirt tells the story of the present day of Flora (Vanessa Redgrave) who finds her demons have come back to haunt her when her vet grandson, Adam (Julian Morris), is struggling with his sexuality, tentatively forms a relationship with his client Steve (David Gyasi).
While a more accepting world means many of the external obstacles that affected Michael and Thomas have fallen away, a minefield of internalised issues and dangerous temptations still line the road to Adam, Steve and Flora’s happiness.
When the discovery of a lost painting by Thomas March brings things to a head, can Flora reconcile her past with her grandson’s future? And is Adam brave enough to choose love?
Further casting includes Joanna Vanderham as the 1940s Flora, Oliver Jackson-Cohen as Michael and James McArdle as Thomas, with – in part two – Julian Sands as Caspar and Angel Coulby as Claudie.
