The West End production of Alexi Kaye Campbell’s Apologia, directed by Jamie Lloyd, officially opened August 3 at Trafalgar Studios.

Apologia stars Tony and Emmy winner Stockard Channing as Kristin, a firebrand liberal matriarch and eminent art historian. A birthday gathering should be a cause for celebration, but the cracks in her family relationships are brought to the surface by the recent publication of her memoir.

The production will run through November 18.
