The Apple Family Plays
Tony Award winning Richard Nelson’s celebrated four play cycle has been described as ‘one of the great accomplishments in American theater to date this century’ (New York Times).
Centered on the fictional, liberal Apple family of upstate New York, these interconnecting dramas explore politics, change and family dynamics in the 21st century with remarkable immediacy. First commissioned by The Public Theater, each play premiered on the night on which it was set. Featuring the original ensemble cast that has come to embody Nelson’s fascinating family,See More from Series
‘… no previous works of theater have been topical in the resonant and specific ways of the apple Family Plays… a rare and radiant mirror on the way we live’ New York Times
In That Hopey Changey Thing, the Apples reflect on the state of their family and discuss memory, manners and politics as polls close on the 2010 mid-term elections and a groundswell of conservative sentiment flips Congress on its head.
This event is part of a larger series of plays that can be enjoyed together or separately. For the full listings of each play please view
