What even is gender anyway? In Gabriel, playwright Francesca Pazniokas' updated interpretation of George Sand's classic play, a bright, perceptive teenager feels trapped in the confines of society's unyielding approach to gender. His family wants Gabriel to be one gender, while her lover wants Gabriel to be another. A rarely-produced romantic drama of misgendering, female repression, and discovery of personal identity, Gabriel is primed to speak to our modern world and current political climate.
