Apollo's Mission

21:25-22:15, Wednesday 7th August 2019

 

Music: Edward Lambert

Words: Norman Welch

 

Once upon a time, fifty years ago, Apollo (the sun-god) was President of Everything, while his dim sister (the moon-goddess) was just a cabaret artiste in a seedy nightclub. As the Americans invade the moon in July 1969, events downtown take a sinister turn and confusion ensues. Can the gods sort it out or is the President too dysfunctional? Adding a bonkers twist to the Apollo 11 commemorations, a talented cast presents a funopera that investigates our fascination for all things lunar.
