Kristin Miller is a firebrand liberal matriarch and eminent art historian. A birthday gathering should be a cause for celebration but the cracks in her family relationships are brought to the surface by the recent publication of her memoir. As the evening progresses, questions are asked about the sacrifices she has made and about the price paid by those she loves.
Apologia is a witty, topical and passionate play about generations, secrets and warring perspectives.
