Awards & Reviews

The New York Times' Best Theatre of 2016

‘The acting is remarkable ... Do see it.’

‘No hours of watching cable TV, or reading screeds of news analysis will take you — with brilliant insight and compassion — to the epicentre of America’s distress like The Gabriels.’

‘A truly remarkable and unique experience, there are so many wonderful things to be said about the eight-hour play experiences ... the best thing that can be said is that the show is a must-see. ’

‘The most resonantly topical and emotionally engaging play of this election year.’

‘ A sui generis triumph ... Every performance glows.’

‘A glorious accomplishment.’

‘We’ve had to pluck sprigs of humanity where we can find them this year, and Nelson’s plays have offered them up, humbly. ’

About

Three courses of classic drama.

Join the Gabriels for the ultimate theatre experience, as Tony Award-winning playwright and director Richard Nelson presents his strikingly relevant and fiercely human trilogy in this quintessential Festival event.

Over the course of three plays (experienced as one marathon event) we meet the Gabriels – upstate New Yorkers trying to make sense of a fast changing world. To the rhythm of their peeling, chopping and mixing, we are offered a fly on the wall look at American family life.

Exquisitely performed, The Gabriels is an insightful and fresh reflection on life in the USA in this tumultuous election year. A new American classic.
