Sorry $15.99

Richard Nelson

Published by Broadway Play Publishing

2 Male 3 Female

The latest work in Tony Award winner Nelson's collection of political plays about an American family

Following Sweet and Sad and That Hopey Changey Thing, the drama takes place on the morning of the 2012 Presidential election

November 6 is also the day when schoolteachers Barbara and Marian Apple, who share a house, and the Manhattan-based Richard, a lawyer, and Jane, a writer - are to take their Uncle Benjamin to an assisted living center

"SORRY is about as big and as small a family drama as there is in American literature these days ... a beautiful, deeply cathartic play" ~ Ben Brantley, The New York Times

"One of the marvels of the Apple plays, each set at a pressing national moment, is how the family marks the huge event as they grapple and go on with their own urgent matters. The big picture illuminates and informs what's happening close to home and vice versa. SORRY is the richest instalment so far in the series, and that's saying something after the wonderful SWEET AND SAD. SORRY is smart, funny and unapologetically heartbreaking" ~ Joe Dziemianowicz, New York Daily News
