1943. Guernsey . During the German occupation of the islands. A forgotten moment in British history. A young man, barely alive, is washed up on a Guernsey beach. Believing him to perhaps being an RAF pilot he is taken by the women of the Becquet family into their home and hidden. A dangerous and illicit action. As he recovers consciousness it is apparent that he is fluent in both English and German . But he has no recollection of who he is ; British pilot or German soldier? Or is he an innocent or madman - Saviour or dark Angel?
The bonds between the women in the Becquet household are complicated - not always easy and set within a community in crisis (the Occupation). The arrival of the young man stirs up all sorts of feelings and resentments. The presence of a newly arrived German officer on the Island and the emerging relationship between him and Jeanne Becquet complicates matters further.
''Gabriel'' explores the heart of memory, identity and imagination as well as the lies people tell themselves and each other to make the darkness light again. The action builds to a tense and dramatic climax .

MASTER FEN IMAGE web

 

Fen

 

by Caryl Churchill

 

directed by Ian Amos

 

 

 

FEN centres on the lives of a group of women working on the land in East Anglia in the early 1980s. It is a tough play, but punctuated with humour. The women live harsh lives, haunted by the past and have hopes for their futures.

The play was derived from interviews with local people: Their words and their stories form its backbone. That community is represented by over 20 characters that span the generations from children to a woman celebrating her 90th birthday.

Caryl Churchill is one of the UK’s leading living playwrights and FEN one of her major works.
