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.
Alexi Kate Campbell’s other plays include Sunset at The Villa Thalia at the National Theatre and The Faith Machine at the Royal Court.
This new production of Apologia also marks a return to the Trafalgar Studios for Jamie Lloyd following acclaimed productions of The Maids, The Ruling Class and Macbeth.
