Gabriel is a drama by Moira Buffini
In Nazi-occupied Guernsey, an island in the English Channel off the coast of Normandy, the Becquet family’s home is requisitioned by SS officers. As widowed matriarch Jeanne navigates the dangerous game of Major Von Pfunz’s attraction to her, her Jewish daughter-in-law discovers a strange and beautiful man washed up on the shore. Wracked by fever, the man can remember nothing, including his own name; with equal probability he’s a downed Royal Air Force pilot or an overboarded SS officer, Jeanne’s daughters convince her to shelter him until his memory returns. But harboring this fallen Gabriel threatens the modicum of safety and stability Jeanne’s wrung from her family’s dispossession.
