The Gabriels: What Did You Expect?

1 hr 41 min | Plays

WHAT DID YOU EXPECT? brings us back to the kitchen of the Gabriel family, with the country now in the midst of the general election for President. In the course of one evening in the house they grew up in, history (both theirs and our country's), money, politics, family, art and culture are chopped up and mixed together, while a meal is made around the kitchen table.

WHAT DID YOU EXPECT? brings us back to the kitchen of the Gabriel family, with the country now in the midst of the general election for President. In the course of one evening in the house they grew up in, history (both theirs and our country's), money, politics, family, art and culture are chopped up and mixed together, while a meal is made around the kitchen table. In the exquisitely moving second part of his three-play cycle The Gabriels: Election Year in the Life of One Family, Tony winning writer and director Richard Nelson (The Apple Family Plays, James Joyce’s The Dead) brings us back into the Rhinebeck kitchen of the Gabriel family as they await the results of the presidential election on November 8, 2016.
