About

Presented by MERRIGONGX 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?
