A disastrous family reunion is the occasion for a sharp and perceptive look at what has happened to 60s idealists and their children.

Kristin Miller is an eminent and successful art historian. As a young mother she followed her politics and vocation, storming Parisian barricades and moving to Florence. Her birthday should be a time for celebration but, when her two sons deliver their versions of the past, everyone must confront the cost of Kristin‘s commitment to her passions.

Alexi Kaye Campbell's play Apologia premiered at The Bush Theatre, London, in 2009.

The play is also available in a revised edition published alongside the West End revival in 2017.
