"In this acclaimed three-part play cycle, Richard Nelson--author of the much-lauded The Apple Family plays--deftly embeds the chaotic tension of the 2016 Presidential election into the hyperrealistic family gathering in the home of the Gabriels in Rhinebeck, New York. Each play is set over the course of one evening in the house the family grew up in. History (both theirs and our country's), money, politics, family and culture are mixed together as a meal is being made--all combining to make theatre that is as immediate as it is riveting in its humanity. The trilogy includes Hungry, What Did You Expect?, and Women of a Certain Age"--
