The Gabriels Trilogy

The Public Theater (New York)

The Gabriels: Hungry

by Richard Nelson | UK Premiere

‘Nelson writes with compassion and insight… his actors brilliantly inhabit his characters’ The Guardian ★★★★★

To the rhythm of peeling, chopping and mixing, Hungry places us in the kitchen of the Gabriel family of Rhinebeck, New York. The family discusses their lives and disappointments, as they fight the fear of being left behind and attempt to find resilience in the face of loss.

Book for this play individually above, or buy a bundle for all three in the trilogy.

Limited £10 Festival Standby tickets are available for certain groups (including under 26s and over 60s) on the day of each performance from the Brighton Festival Ticket Office (10am - 12pm), and then from 45 minutes before the show at the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts.

Join us for a pre-show talk with Richard Nelson on Tue 23 May

Tue 23 May, 6.15pm | FREE for all ticket holders of the 8pm performance

You are invited to join us for a special pre-show event with the writer-director of The Gabriels Trilogy, the Tony and Olivier award-winning dramatist Richard Nelson. In this special event, Richard will talk about the process of creating the characters, the challenges of writing in real-time (he was still writing until 4.30pm on the day of the first performance), and the shifting resonance of these plays as the political context in which they are performed changes. This event is free for all ticket holders of the 8pm performance on Tue 23 May. No need to book, just turn up and show your ticket.
