Apologia at Trafalgar Studios starring Stockard Channing
Hollywood and Broadway icon Stockard Channing will star in Olivier Award winner Alexi Kaye Campbell’s acclaimed drama Apologia, directed by Jamie Lloyd.
Apologia will run from 29 July 2017 until 18 November 2017 at Trafalgar Studios.
Stockard Channing plays Kristin Miller, a firebrand liberal matriarch of a dynamic family, who is presiding over her birthday celebrations. An eminent art historian, Kristin’s almost evangelical dedication to her career and her political activism has resulted in her sons – Peter, a merchant banker, and Simon, a writer – harbouring deeply rooted and barely suppressed resentments towards her. The fissures in her relationship with them are brought to the fore by the recent publication of her memoir.
As the evening progresses through barbed humour, Kristin’s family and friends, and ultimately Kristin herself, question their achievements and choices, and whether they were worth the sacrifices they made. In the increasingly fragmented political turmoil of today’s landscape these questions have never seemed more relevant, and will strike a chord with audiences.
The cast features Stockard Channing, Laura Carmichael, Freema Agyeman, Joseph Millson and Desmond Barrit.
Written by Alexi Kaye Campbell. Directed by Jamie Lloyd..
