Roundabout Theatre Company presents the New York premiere of Alexi Kaye Campbell's Apologia, starring Tony & Emmy Award winner Stockard Channing and directed by three-time Obie Award winner Daniel Aukin, as part of its 2018-2019 off-Broadway season.

Previews begin at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre on September 27, 2018, ahead of an official opening on October 16 and a limited run through to December 16, 2018.

Synopsis: "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.  APOLOGIA is a passionate, human and humorous clash of generations and beliefs—a lively look at yesterday's rebels living in today's reality."

Ms. Channing starred as Kristin Miller in an acclaimed production of Apologia, which ran in London's West End at the Trafalgar Studios from July 29 through to November 18, 2017. Read our London critic Mark Shenton's 4-star review on our London Theatre Guide sister site.
