Gabriel plays at Linda Gross Theater Atlantic Theater
336 West 20th St. NY
Seating chart & directions
GABRIEL is set around a largely forgotten moment in British history - the German occupation of the Channel Islands during World War II. A naked young man washes up on a Guernsey beach. Unnervingly handsome and fluent in both German and English, he has no recollection of who he is - patriot or nazi...innocent or madman.
GABRIEL explores the heart of memory, identity and imagination, as well as the lies people tell themselves and each other to make the darkness light again.
Playwright MOIRA BUFFINI is making her Atlantic and American stage debut. The 1997 world premiere production of her play Gabriel was awarded the UK's prestigious London Weekend Television Plays on Stage Award and the Meyer Whitworth Award. Her play Dinner, commissioned by the National Theatre, was nominated for an Olivier Award® for Best New Comedy and was recently staged at The Bay Street Theatre.
Director DAVID ESBJORNSON returns to the Atlantic after staging Trumpery in the 2007-08 season. He staged the Tony Award® winning production of Edward Albee's The Goat, or Who is Silvia? and the New York premiere of Israel Horovitz's My Old Lady, Albee's The Play About the Baby and the Tony Award® nominated The Ride Down Mt. Morgan by Arthur Miller at the Public Theater and on Broadway.
