The Public Theater

The Gabriels: Women of a Certain Age

by Richard Nelson | UK Premiere

'Sad, funny, political, deeply intelligent and richly human, this trilogy is a huge achievement' The Times ★★★★

In the third and final play, the Gabriels gather once again to await the result of the election.

As they consider the future of their country, town and home, they compare notes on the search for empathy and authenticity at a time when the rules are forever changing.

Settle in for three unforgettable evenings with the Gabriels as they celebrate connection and creativity and wait for the world to change.

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