APOLOGIA by Alexi Kaye Campbell

Evening Standard **** Daily Telegraph **** Financial Times **** Sunday Times **** Sunday Express **** 'Alexi Kaye Campbell triumphs' IOS Wed 17 Jun - Sat 18 Jul, 2009

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 recent memoir secures her place in history but fails to mention her sons.

Her birthday should be a time of celebration but when her sons decide to deliver their own versions of the past, everyone must confront the cost of Kristin's commitment to her passions.

APOLOGIA is Alexi Kaye Campbell's second play, following his acclaimed debut The Pride (Laurence Olivier Award, Critics' Circle Award) which ran at the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs in November 2008.

APOLOGIA is presented with the support of the Peter Wolff Theatre Trust and Deliverance
