A witty, topical and passionate play about generations, secrets, and the stories we tell about our lives.

Kristin Miller is a firebrand matriarch and eminent art historian. Her birthday gathering should be a cause for celebration, but the recent publication of her memoir has exposed cracks in her family relationships. As the evening progresses, questions arise about the sacrifices she has made and about the price paid by those nearest to her.

Alexi Kaye Campbell's play Apologia was originally produced at the Bush Theatre, London, in 2009. This edition was published alongside the play's revival at the Trafalgar Studios, London, in 2017, directed by Jamie Lloyd and starring Stockard Channing as Kristin.

Apologia is also available in an earlier edition, and in the collection Alexi Kaye Campbell Plays: One.
