Autumn, and the orchard is full of cider apples: "Beauty of Bath", "Kingston Black", and "Glory of the West". Inside the farmhouse, the rule of matriarch Irene is challenged when her estranged daughter returns and her middle-aged son, beginning to tire of being tied to the unprofitable farm, grows restless. This is a richly evocative tale about life in our changing rural landscape. "Comfort me with Apples" premieres at the Hampstead Theatre in October 2005.
