"APOLLO'S COMEUPPANCE starts with a woman who just isn't into him and Henry presses the pedal even harder as we go deeper and deeper into a dark passage in an unexpectedly delightful short play that illustrates a common problem in today's society: what happens when you don't listen to the prophetic warning. Highly recommended for its theatricality, humor, wit, and for taking the tropes of classical mythology and changing them."
"Gotta love any play that describes Greek god Apollo as "extremely petulant." Good use of Greek mythology to show us exactly what is wrong in current American society. A great female role and a hilariously petulant role opposite her. Good use of foreshadowing with the sailors. Recommended."
