Gabriel’s Dream invites us to witness the experiences of three couples on Lesbos Island, who despite setting out from different places, have very different yet very similar stories. The old Greek couple Angeliki and Angelos, who were formerly forced to migrate from Turkey to Lesbos, Mirvan and Yana who have fled the war in Syria and are heading West in hopes of starting a new life, and Berna and Berke from İstanbul in search of a new direction in their relationship… During the play, which focuses on a few days on the Middle East-Aegean route where characters in Lesbos share the same time frame but lead separate lives, the audience will witness the butterfly effect these six people have on each other’s personal stories. Gabriel’s Dream, written by Sema Elcim and directed by Ahmet Sami Özbudak, relays that even in our relatively comfortable lives we cannot ‘escape’ what occurs on the planet through staging the stories of people which are similar to the ones we often hear in real life.
