GABRIEL is based on the true and little-known Richmond story about the events of the summer of 1800 and the state-wide rebellion by enslaved Virginians to win their freedom. The revolution was led by Gabriel, a literate blacksmith enslaved on Thomas Prosser’s tobacco plantation in Henrico. Join us for this world premiere musical and find out why Gabriel’s story has been lost, buried, and forgotten.

“EVERY DAY BRINGS ME CLOSER
TO WHAT I WANT AND WHERE I’LL BE.
BRINGIN’ ME CLOSER
TO BEIN’ FREE.”
