The Apologies consisted of six very short plays written by NYC-based writers. The works ranged in tone from hilarious to heart-breaking, but all involved, in some way, an apology, or the idea of apologizing. Between scenes were readings from The Apology Blog and original monologues.

The show ran from March 29th through April 7th, 2007 on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 8 pm, at UNDER St. Marks Theatre.

Cast and crew: Lucy Baker, Tom Bartos, Greg Burgett, Martin Dockery, Kelly Eads, Jesse Jones, Darren Kaninsky, Lisa Long, Jeremy Mather, Timothy Mather, Annie Meisels, Lindsey Moore, Caroline O'Hare, Dan O'Hare, Peter Plano, Matt Sears, Jeff Sproul, and D. Robert Wolcheck.

Special thanks to:
Jessee Leili Jones and Dana Rossi for running the house.
Caroiline O'Hare for the amazing work on costumes.
Lisa Long for her fantastic choreography.
Horse Trade Theater Group for the great place to perform.
