Tony and Emmy Award winner Stockard Channing, Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who), Olivier Award winner Desmond Barrit, Laura Carmichael (Downton Abbey) and Joseph Millson (The Last Kingdom) in a new production of Alexi Kaye Campbell’s darkly funny play about family and its secrets, directed by Jamie Lloyd.
APOLOGIA [a-p-’lo ¯ -j(e ¯ -)]: a formal written defence of one’s opinions or conduct [OED]
Kristin Miller (Stockard Channing) is a firebrand matriarch and eminent art historian. As a darkly funny evening to celebrate her birthday progresses, secrets emerge about the sacrifices she has made and the price paid by those she loves.
Stockard Channing, best known for starring roles in The West Wing, The Good Wife, her Oscar® and Golden Globe nominated role in Six Degrees of Separation, and of course the iconic role of ‘Rizzo’ in the film Grease, is also an acclaimed Broadway and West End star, most recently nominated for her 7th Tony Award for It’s Only a Play and Other Desert Cities, affirming her position as a true theatrical legend.
Apologia marks the return to the Trafalgar Studios of Jamie Lloyd, following his critically acclaimed productions of The Ruling Class and Macbeth starring James McAvoy and his hit production with Martin Freeman of Richard III.
Alexi Kaye Campbell’s compelling drama follows his critical success with The Pride and his acclaimed plays Sunset at The Villa Thalia at the National Theatre and The Faith Machine at the Royal Court Theatre.

An Interview with Freema Agyeman
Doctor Who favourite Freema Agyeman is currently starring alongside Tony and Emmy Award winner Stockard Channing, Downtown Abbey's Laura Carmichael, The Last Kingdom's Joseph Millson and Olivier Award winner Desmond Barrit in Alexi Kaye Campbell's Apologia. Wickedly funny but packing a real bite, the play about a family and its layers of secrets is directed by the Trafalgar Studios' fairy godfather Jamie Lloyd. We caught up with Freema to chat about her experience.
