The Apple family of Rhinebeck, NY, is reunited for Richard Nelson's Sorry, the latest work in his collection of political plays about an American family, which officially opens Off-Broadway Nov. 6. Jay O. Sanders and Maryann Plunkett star.
Tony Award winner Nelson (James Joyce's The Dead) brings back the Apple family from his plays Sweet and Sad and That Hopey Changey Thing for the world premiere of his Election Day-set play Sorry. The drama takes place the morning of the election as Americans head to the polls to cast their votes. Nelson has been updating the script to reflect recent developments in the country and the campaigns.
Previews were originally scheduled to begin Oct. 30, but Hurricane Sandy forced the Public to delay the start of performances. Sorry resumed performances Nov. 3. It will run through Nov. 18 as part of the Public Lab.
According to the Public, "A year after Sweet and Sad, the Apple family again share a meal in Rhinebeck, as they sort through personal and political feelings of loss and confusion on the morning of the day the country will choose the next president. Like the first two plays, Sweet and Sad and That Hopey Changey Thing, Sorry will open on the day that it is set, November 6, 2012 — Election Day."
Nelson is the Tony Award-winning playwright/adaptor of James Joyce's The Dead. His works also include Two Shakespearean Actors, Farewell to the Theatre, Conversations in Tusculum, and Nikolai And The Others, which will debut Off-Broadway at Lincoln Center Theater's Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater in spring 2013.
