This is a play about one mother’s love. One last request. One apple pie.

Imagine someone you love did something unspeakable.

Miriam’s son committed a horrendous crime. Caught, tried and convicted, he has been on death row for twenty-two years. In seven hours the state will execute him. As is the tradition, he is granted a last meal. His request: his mother’s apple pie. As Miriam shows the audience how to make the perfect pie, we watch her attempt to understand what happened to her son – and how everything changed that night twenty-two years ago.

Apples in Winter is an extraordinarily powerful and deeply compassionate play that invites the audience to reflect on the impact of violent crime on its hidden victims. It journeys into the heart of difficult and charged questions about justice, forgiveness and what it is to try and love unconditionally.

*Please note this performance will be followed by a post-show discussion with the performer.

“Remarkable play and performance… inspiring, love endures.” Dr Alison Frater, Chair National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance 2015-2021; Co-chair Clean Break Theatre Company.
