Nov 9, 2018


  You do not mess with Kristin Miller. In the 1960s, she was a radical activist and political protester. Now a celebrated art historian, the publication of her memoir threatens to split her family apart. But Kristin has never been one to shy away from a fight.

 

Direct from London, Alexi Kaye Campbell’s biting play “Apologia” makes its New York debut, produced by Roundabout Theatre Company and featuring Stockard Channing in a powerhouse performance as a woman facing the repercussions of her past.

“Apologia” runs off-Broadway at the Laura Pels Theatre through December 16. Playwright and screenwriter, Alexi Kaye Campbell joins us.
