New Earth Theatre, in association with Arcola Theatre and The North Wall, announce the full cast for the world première of Kyo Choi’s The Apology, portraying the stories of the ‘comfort women’ of the Second World War and the subsequent political cover-up.
Ria Parry directs Minhee Yeo (White Pearl, Royal Court Theatre), Sharan Phull (Everyone’s Talking about Jamie, UK tour), Kwong Loke (The Great Wave, National Theatre), Sarah Lam (Paradise, National Theatre), Jessie Baek (Bridgerton) and Ross Armstrong (Chernobyl).
Based on true accounts by survivors, The Apology opens at Arcola Theatre on 19 September, with previews from 15 September and runs until 8 October.
Director Ria Parry said today, “The North Wall has a reputation for nurturing and championing bold, brilliant artists who may otherwise be unheard in mainstream theatre – and it has been a privilege to support the development and realisation of The Apology alongside the superb team at New Earth and Arcola Theatre. Kyo is a writer of exceptional talent and I am thrilled to be working with the most wonderful cast to bring this story to the stage.”
