"An extraordinary theatrical event in which the personal and the political combine in a way that suggests a contemporary Chekhov." --Michael Billington, Guardian

This intimate and landmark series follows the Gabriel family of Rhinebeck, New York, through the momentous and divisive 2016 election year. While preparing meals in their kitchen, together they grapple in real time with issues of money, history, art, politics and family, as well as the fear of having been left behind.
