“Theatre is not the icing on the cake, nor is it an amuse bouche.
It is sustenance: the nutritious essence that feeds the soul.

Based on an extensive antique apron collection that was originally displayed at the Suffolk County Historical Museum, The Apron Strings Project is a collection of vignettes, poems and songs that tell the story of the women who inhabited those aprons.

Co-produced and directed by Debbie Slevin, and featuring a scene written by Debbie, it was a resounding success and plans are in the works to do an encore presentation.
