Synopsis


Three monologues, which between them look at the art, expectations, and limitations of a public apology - especially when coming from a high-profile woman.


The spotlight is on our obsession for words - whether empty, truthful or even justified.


A Secretary of State for Health and Social Care makes a racist comment to her attending doctor when her child is rushed into hospital.


A prominent travel writer is held responsible for a suicide after a scathing review.


An employee of an aid organisation demands the recompense she truly needs from the CEO after a disingenuous public apology.


The piece explores the meaning of the act of apology, the complex power play at work between the giver and the receiver of an apology, and whether we are responsible for the context of our actions.


Directed by Jane Moriarty (The RSC, The National, Shakespeare's Globe) and performed by acclaimed Australian actress, Gabrielle Scawthorn (The Doctor Blake Mysteries, The Killing Fields, Village Bike).


Written by Lucinda Burnett (Correspondence), Cordelia O'Neill (No Place For A Woman) and Iskandar Sharazuddin (Post-Mortem).
