I conducted some research on Javeenbah Theatre's upcoming production, Apologia, which opens this Friday night. Through many reviews I found some information about the script itself that might perk your interest in purchasing tickets for this show.
So, if the risqué business in Girls Night Out at Tugun Theatre, or Spotlight Theatre's musical fable about an ambitious stage mother fighting for her daughters' success aren’t your cup of tea, then perhaps the contemporary drama of Apologia is!
Originally staged in London in 2009 and featuring Stockard Channing, Apologia has now come to the Gold Coast thanks to Javeenbah Theatre in Nerang. This production is being Directed by Steven Days, the play features an ensemble cast of talented local performers, including Jennifer White, Jessica White, Dominic Bradley, Stephen Nash, and Tabitha Woods.
Apologia intertwines political and family drama and offers a compelling defence of the 1960s' crusading fervour.. The play centres around Kristin Miller, an eminent and successful art historian portrayed by Jennifer White. Her birthday marks the launch of her memoir and serves as the backdrop for the play, which is structured around a reunion that goes awry.
The story reflects on the costs of dedication to one's passions and raises thought-provoking questions about the value of lives dedicated to social reform.
It’s been noted in various reviews, from its 2017 revival, that Alexi Kaye Campbell’s script delves deep into the attitudes of the 1960s which were shaped by the social, economic, and political climate of the time and raises questions that are both relevant and exciting. Such as how societal attitudes towards race, gender, and sexuality have evolved since the 1960s and what still needs to change.
With Jbah delivering a show that delves into such topics, while addressing the generational conflict between baby boomers and their offspring, I’m sure that Apologia will serve as a timely and thought-provoking production that will challenges the audience to re-examine their beliefs and biases. Perhaps, in the process, you may even discover something new about yourself?
