Moira Buffini's Gabriel will make its American premiere Off-Broadway at the Atlantic Theater Company.
According to ATC notes, "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."
David Esbjornson directs a cast that includes Lee Aaron Rosen, Patricia Conolly, Lisa Emery, Zach Grenier, Samantha Soule and Libby Woodbridge.
