Women Of a Certain Age
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 Joyceâ€™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.
Running Time: 1 hour and 45 minutes, with no intermission
