 ABOUT THE PLAY

Miriam, who lives in a state with the death penalty, bakes a pie for her son’s last meal. 22 years ago Robert committed murder and was convicted and sentenced to death. Under unusual circumstances Miriam reflects on the story of their lives and those affected by the crime, the marriage she had with Robert’s father, and Robert’s addiction. As she bakes the pie, Miriam confronts memories and grapples with the complexities of unconditional love with genuine fear of and for her child.
