About Apologia

Unpack Nicola Gunn’s personal fantasy of being a French actress—despite being categorically not French.

In a surreal comedic encounter, the aspiring French actress quarrels with a Japanese film director and their interpreter about how to translate a script of a complex mother-daughter relationship to the screen. Their different points of view spiral into riveting and confounding misunderstandings, and the power of who is doing the translating is paramount.

Apologia fuses comedy with awkward attempts to express ourselves and communicate across boundaries. Armed with her signature bold and candid approach, Nicola Gunn (Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster) confronts having your voice translated by others.
