The Apology | VOD

When ad exec Danny (played by Aaron McIlroy) accidentally unleashes the most politically insensitive song and dance act at a national peace conference, he goes into hiding at a rundown caravan park. Unexpectedly trapped in an extended lockdown with a right-wing resort manager, Danny uses the time to examine his life, and the way he has treated those closest to him.

Created by award-winning comedy theatre partners Aaron McIlroy and writer-director Patrick Kenny, The Apology is a quirky and hilarious look at the world of tone-deaf dudes and privilege in its many forms.
