Starting with the crust and ending with the ping of a timer, two women bake an apple pie. Mama shares her recipe for life in the hopes that her daughter Dory will restart her own. Intimate, poignant, and often hilarious...you'll leave with a warmed heart...and maybe even a slice of warm pie!

How to make a pie? It's almost a lost art these days. But one of the percs of Lawrence Thelan's heart-warming play about the bonds uniting a mother and her long-suffering daughter is the recipe we absorb by osmosis and at the end, a fresh-out-of-the-oven, warm piece of pie!

There are moments when it seems the chopping and coring and measuring and mixing of some of the dessert's ingredients, not to mention Dory's constant eyerolling over her mother's demands and inappropriate comments, are robbing viewers of our precious and fleeting time on the planet. What makes it all work, however, is the sincerity and downhome spirit of these two veteran actors and the insightful leadership of their director, Maria Gobetti, who just last month was honored with the prestigious Milton Katselas Career Achievement Award from the LA Drama Critics Circle.
