THE GABRIELS: Election Year in the Life of One Family Play Three: WOMEN OF A CERTAIN AGE

Sunday, November 27

In the exquisitely moving finale 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.

Paying tribute to the difficult year behind them, the Gabriels compare notes on the search for empathy and authenticity at a time when the game seems rigged and the rules are forever changing.
Settle in for the final unforgettable evening with one extraordinary, imperfect American family as they celebrate connection and creativity, struggle to move forward together, and wait for the world to change.

UNIVERSES, the award-winning ensemble known for their fusion of theater, poetry, jazz, hip-hop, politics, down home blues and Spanish boleros, makes their Public Theater premiere with an explosive new work about the complicated legacies of the Black Panther Party and the Young Lords Org/Party. Directed and Developed by Liesl Tommy (Eclipsed, The Urban Retreat).

UNIVERSES created Party People based on dozens of interviews with members of these ground-breaking, society-changing groups. Party People imagines a present-day reunion at an art opening curated by two young counter culturalists; but the curators themselves have complex relationships with the Party members, who fought injustice and provided free food and medical care for their communities—often at the expense of the people who loved them most. Old wounds and generational divides collide in this astonishing, multi-media theatrical event about the price of being a revolutionary, and what it means for those who come after.

PARTY PEOPLE

Thursday, December 1

UNIVERSES, the award-winning ensemble known for their fusion of theater, poetry, jazz, hip-hop, politics, down home blues and Spanish boleros, makes their Public Theater premiere with an explosive new work about the complicated legacies of the Black Panther Party and the Young Lords Org/Party. Directed and Developed by Liesl Tommy (Eclipsed, The Urban Retreat).

UNIVERSES created Party People based on dozens of interviews with members of these ground-breaking, society-changing groups. Party People imagines a present-day reunion at an art opening curated by two young counter culturalists; but the curators themselves have complex relationships with the Party members, who fought injustice and provided free food and medical care for their communities—often at the expense of the people who loved them most. Old wounds and generational divides collide in this astonishing, multi-media theatrical event about the price of being a revolutionary, and what it means for those who come after.

THE GABRIELS: Election Year in the Life of One Family Play Three: WOMEN OF A CERTAIN AGE

Friday, December 2

In the exquisitely moving finale 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.

Women of a Certain Age takes place in the course of a single night, eight months after we first meet the Gabriels. Patricia, the family matriarch, joins her children and daughters-in-law as they prepare a meal from the past and consider the future of their country, town and home. Paying tribute to the difficult year behind them, the Gabriels compare notes on the search for empathy and authenticity at a time when the game seems rigged and the rules are forever changing.
Settle in for the final unforgettable evening with one extraordinary, imperfect American family as they celebrate connection and creativity, struggle to move forward together, and wait for the world to change.
