The Apollo is still here, and still creating theatre for you, our audiences – just in a rather different way from what we’re all used to. Our latest production is a series of five monologues entitled ‘Tell Tales’.
Created by one of our members, Chris Hicks, the pieces each tell a different tale: from ‘Taking Care’, in which Peggy Pendle, a rather cantankerous old woman, recovers from a period of ill health, through ‘The Duchess of Argyle’, in which ‘The Baroness’, a middle-aged woman with expensive tastes and a rather flamboyant alter ego, tells her story, to ‘Celebrity’ (written by Inge Holder), in which Grandma gives as good as she gets when the world’s media takes an interest in her affairs. There’s also ‘Digging Up The Past’, in which Cal, a building site manager, finds it increasingly difficult to cope when things start to go wrong at work, and the chilling ‘Closing Time’, when Tony Tait takes a wrong turn as he walks home from the pub.
