The Gabriels, a three-play cycle at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, chronicles a year in the life of one family dealing with a particularly tense and historic election year. The family reunites at three different points across the year 2016 in three unique pieces titled Hungry, What Did You Expect?, and Women of a Certain Age. Written and directed by Tony Award winner Richard Nelson, the highly acclaimed trilogy exhibits how politics affects the family.
