After six months of self-imposed pandemic isolation, the Apple siblings again gather on Zoom for an evening of dinner, conversation and performance, while the world continues to sputter more and more out of control, amidst anger, loss, death and a coming election

Incidental Moments of the Day is the third play in The Apple Family trilogy, preceded by What Do We Need To Talk About? and And So We Come Forth


"Truly profound... The genius of Incidental Moments is in how it extends [the] social and verbal uneasiness within a family to embrace the most important and divisive subjects of the day." ~ The New York Times

"The piece’s unspoken liberalism - real liberalism, which allows for different points of view -is a moving rebuke to our parched, stark times.” ~ The Sunday Times

“An achingly poignant trilogy that maps out the existential black hole we seem to have fallen into.” - The Washington Post

“The pieces (the trilogy) will be remembered, mostly, for how they told the story of our feelings while isolated.” - Chicago Tribune
