A few new reviews for Apologia have been shared again this week, with kind words for Joseph's performances as Peter and Simon. Catch Apologia at the Trafalgar Studios until November. 

Originally written for two actors, the script has also been amended so that the brothers are now played by one actor, Joseph Millson, who excels in contrasting Peter’s self-confident directness with Simon’s subdued, more obliquely accusing manner – especially in his disturbing reminiscence of a night in Genoa when he was picked up by a man after his mother did not meet him at the station.

Joseph Millson brilliantly plays both sons, showing how they have fallen at very different angles to the tree but with some of the same bruises. New Statesman

Laura Carmichael is delightful as the American Christian girlfriend of son Peter. Her flawless accent and comedy timing are exceptional. Joseph Millson has a neat doubling as both sons, the corporate Peter and the depressed and broken Simon. His monologue in the second half is a highlight. Simon’s soap star girlfriend Claire played by Freema Agyeman gives the evening a feisty kick and ensures that the sparks fly. Desmond Barrit as Kristin’s gay best friend provides strong support and much needed comic relief This is an entertaining evening that anyone who has had to endure those awkward family gatherings can relate to. Painful, funny, tender and heart-breaking; it’s the best and the worst of all our families. Attitude
