The scene on stage is simply created by Mike Britton's ingenious design: an undulating floor contained within an unbroken, mud-plastered cottage wall, through which a historically perfect small window lets in autumnal sunlight. The wall serves to contain the primitive interior of a bedroom and little-used parlour, with centre stage being a farm kitchen in which upturned furniture and broken plates suggest violent domestic upheaval.
This turmoil is explained in embittered, grieving altercation between old Irene and her simpleton younger brother, Len. Veronica Roberts magnificently sustains the semblance of age to become the ageing farmer's wife, newly and suddenly widowed, while Len is amusingly and inventively played by the fairly youthful, Graham Turner.
COMFORT ME WITH APPLES by Ruth Reichl | Kirkus Reviews

Just when you've had enough comes a disarming chapter on her tragic adoption of a baby girl who was subsequently returned to the birth mother against the author's wishes.
