The PPC's Crime and Justice Policy Research Program is co-sponsoring the production of Apples in Winter at Riverside Theatre, March 2-18 (show times vary - see website).
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 way. Robert was caught, tried, and convicted of first-degree murder and has been 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. And about how we care for each other. And about how to make a really good apple pie.
