Sorry Sorry Sorry

22 - 24 Jul

By Applespiel

Sorry Sorry Sorry is a deep dive into the modern apology. Where is the meaning and sincerity in a landscape filled with apologies born from football scandals, YouTube personality confessions and uncountable moments of personal shame?

In 2021 the world is a different place and our ideas of accountability have shifted – we hope. So has the value we place on being in a shared physical space, exploring ideas. In a social and political climate where interrogating the past, being held to account, and seeking a productive way forward are key issues, the act of apologising is more important than ever.

Using apologies that are written, performed, broadcast, filmed and edited, they are transformed when brought into a live theatre space and explore the intersection between performance, accountability and apology. With a lot of material to inhabit, you can’t help but ask: if you rehearse an apology and put it in front of an audience, can you still mean it?

Cast & Creative

Appelspiel Simon Vaughan, Nicole Kennedy, Emma McManus, Mark Rogers, Troy Reid, Joseph Parro, Nathan Harrison, Rachel Roberts and Solomon Thomas.

Pay What You Feel

We want to make it easier to experience new works. So for this event there is no set ticket price. Instead, you simply reserve a spot, show up, then pay what you feel the performance is worth afterwards.

Register and reserve your spot online.

If this is your first time, you will need to sign up. All you need is an email address and a credit or debit card (note – no money is charged to your card.)

3. Pay what you feel. 

After the show, we’ll send you an email asking how much you want to contribute. You choose the amount based on your experience and your circumstances. There is no minimum or maximum amount.

Important: If you reserve a seat and don’t show up on the night, you will be charged a $20 no-show fee per seat. This ensures that the artists don’t miss out for their work.
