"I exist now. Don't tell me that I didn't exist

How should a nation apologise for the crimes of its past?

Seoul, 1991. She kept her silence for over forty years. Then Sun-Hee spoke out, igniting a fire that burns to this day. Yuna is about to uncover a shameful family secret. Priyanka, the first United Nations investigator into Violence Against Women, probes the harrowing circumstances of the WWII “comfort women”. Three women's lives intertwine as they speak truth to power and confront the atrocity of Japanese military sexual slavery during wartime.

Based on true accounts by survivors and historical documents, The Apology is a play about what it takes to forgive. This edition is published to coincide with the world premiere at the Arcola Theatre, UK, in September 2022.
