APPLES IN WINTER
January 18 @ 7:30 pm - February 5 @ 9:30 pm£10
LynchPin Theatre Company presents the British premiere of Apples in Winter by US playwright Jennifer Fawcett. A moving drama of a mother making an apple pie for her son’s last meal on death row
The rehearsed reading is performed by Edie Campbell and directed by Claire Parker
Twenty-two years ago, Miriam’s son, Robert, committed a horrible crime while in the grips of withdrawal. It was violent and terrifying and resulted in the deaths of two teenagers who did not deserve to die in such a violent and terrifying way. Robert was caught, tried, and convicted of first-degree murder and has been sitting on death row ever since. In seven hours the state will execute him. As is the tradition, Robert is granted a last meal. His request: a slice of his mother’s apple pie.
This is a play about monsters and the mothers of monsters.
About how we care for each other.
And about how to make a really good apple pie.
