Professional actors. Professional productions.


Written by Jennifer Fawcett 

Directed by Beth Wood

March 2–18, 2018

Winner of the Smith Prize from the National New Play Network and a NNPN Rolling World Premiere.


From the mind of Jennifer Fawcett (local talent, nationally known, who brought Riverside Theatre the hit plays Birth Witches and Goat Show) comes the story of Miriam.  Miriam is a mom. Miriam is a pie maker and tonight Miriam is making a pie for her son. It will also be the last time she will do this for him. A play about mothers & sons, about how we care for each other, and about how to make a really good apple pie.


Artistic Director Sean Lewis  says: "Heartbreaking and award winning for good reason. Riverside can do intimate as good as anyone and this play continues that tradition."


Apples in Winter is produced at RIVERSIDE THEATRE as a part of a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere. Other partnering theaters are CENTENARY STAGE COMPANY (HACKETTSTOWN, NJ) and PHOENIX THEATRE (INDIANAPOLIS, IN). For more information please visit
