1943. Nazi occupied Guernsey. Widow and mother Jeanne does whatever it takes to keep her adolescent daughter Estelle and daughter-in-law Lily safe on an island filled with danger and fear. Her toughest test arrives in the terrifying Commander Von Pfunz, whose romantic advances may be the only way to keep her family alive. But tensions intensify when a mysterious young man is washed ashore with no memory of who he is. Fluent in German and the Queen’s English, is he an RAF pilot, an SS interrogator, a local boy with amnesia or a saviour sent from heaven? The stakes are high and getting it wrong means certain death.
Starring Paul McGann (Withnail and I, Doctor Who and The Monocled Mutineer) and Belinda Lang (2point4 Children, Second Thoughts) and written by Moira Buffini (Handbagged, wonder.land), this electric drama with edge-of-your-seat suspense is directed by award-winning Kate McGregor and produced by Theatre6, producers of the award-winning, West End smash hit The Scottsboro Boys. GABRIEL also stars Jules Melvin, Robin Morrissey, Sarah Schoenbeck and Venice van Someren.
Paul McGann is terrific in the role. Magnetic
Lang is superb as the resistance-fighter whose weapon is her wit, double-bluffing to the hilt, her hatred cloaked beneath insouciant disdain like some undercover agent.
Kate McGregor’s smooth direction exploits the drama to its fullest, creating a genuinely exciting piece of storytelling, complemented by finely nuanced performances and an atmospheric original score by Maria Haik Escudero.
