The Gabriels: What Did You Expect?

9 Feb 2017

'Nelson's triptych... feels like a theatrical miracle. With the simplest of ingredients, it conjures an entire world in front of your eyes and fills it with teeming life' What's On Stage ★★★★★

In the second play of The Gabriels, the country is now in the midst of a Presidential election campaign. 

In the course of one evening in the house the Gabriels grew up in, history (both theirs and America's), money, politics, family, art and culture are chopped up and mixed together, while a meal is made around the kitchen table.

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.
