About the show

Tony and Emmy Award-winning star Stockard Channing returns to the London stage in Jamie Lloyd’s new production of Apologia. Originally opening in 2008 at the Bush Theatre, Alexi Kate Campbell’s unforgettable play runs at Trafalgar Studios for a limited summer season.

Apologia follows Kristin Miller, a feisty, liberal matriarch, political activist and renowned art historian. Set deep in the English countryside, her birthday celebrations are taking place, but a much darker cloud hangs over her guest’s head. When the publication of her memoirs is announced, her sons’ harboured resentment toward her surfaces.

As the evening goes on, Kristin and her family begin to question their achievements, and whether the choices they have made were worth the sacrifices they have experienced. In an age where the country becomes increasingly fragmented politically, Apologia is especially poignant.

Best known for her iconic role as Rizzo in the hit 1978 film Grease, Stockard Channing has starred in The West Wing, The Good Wife and has had an Oscar-nominated role in Six Degrees of Separation. Her Broadway credits include her Tony Award-winning role in A Day in the Death of Joe Egg, as well as Other Desert Cities, Pal Joey and It’s Only a Play.

Additional casting includes Laura Carmichael (Downton Abbey, The Maids, Uncle Vanya), Doctor Who's Freema Agyeman, Desmond Barrit (Henry IV Parts I and II) and Joseph Millson (The Last Kingom, Mr Foote's Other Leg).

Jamie Lloyd directs, following other Trafalgar Studio successes including the star-studded The Maids, The Homecoming and The Ruling Class. Alexi Kate Campbell’s other works include the Olivier Award-winning The Pride, as well as The Faith Machine at the Royal Court.

Apologia runs at Trafalgar Studios from July 29th to November 18th 2017.

Who Should See It?

Stockard Channing fans will relish the opportunity to see her in a compelling play written by an Olivier Award-winning playwright. Those who have enjoyed Jamie Lloyd’s previous work will find this thrilling.
