Jess is the adopted daughter of a strict evangelist. Her adopted mam thinks she's the chosen one from God. With an upbringing spent learning the bible and praying for »heathens in hot countries« she unnerves both classmates and teachers when she begins school. But she fancies girls. And an orange demon keeps popping into her psyche. Later in life she meets Melanie and friendship soon turns into passion. When her mother and the local pastor learn the truth about their lesbian relationship they take extreme measures to save her from these »unnatural lusts«. This production adapted Jeanette Winterson's bestselling autobiographical first novel and won several prizes. »Oranges are Not the Only Fruit« is a few days ride into the bizarre outposts of religious excess and human obsession. And it's a love story, too.
