What Did You Expect?, the second installment of Richard Nelson's trilogy, The Gabriels: Election Year in the Life of One Family, has released production images from its run at the Public Theater. Performances, which began September 10 in advance of a September 16 press opening, will run through October 9.

Written and directed by Nelson, What Did You Expect? brings us back to the kitchen of the Gabriel family, with the country now in the midst of the general election for president. In the course of one evening in the house they grew up in, history (both theirs and our country's), money, politics, family, art, and culture are chopped up and mixed together, while a meal is made around the kitchen table.

The cast features Meg Gibson (Karin Gabriel), Lynn Hawley (Hannah Gabriel), Roberta Maxwell (Patricia Gabriel), Maryann Plunkett (Mary Gabriel), Jay O. Sanders (George Gabriel), and Amy Warren (Joyce Gabriel).

Take a look below at images from the production.
