★★★★ THE UPCOMING
Torben Betts has written Apollo 13 during lockdown, carefully ensuring that the actors and backstage crew can remain socially distanced throughout filming. Not only that, but he has also incorporated a notion of the trials and tribulations of “the pestilence” from which we are all suffering into a script that runs for just over one hour. Compelling.
★★★★ BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE
he fine work gone into the production should be praised. With uncertainty about the future of theatre companies, regional theatres, and even the larger west end productions, it’s great to see creativity and performance flourish.
The whole team at The Original Theatre Company can congratulate themselves on a job well done. They have, once again raised the bar in producing a riveting online production which appeals to a wide audience.
