By Branden Jacobs-Jenkins
Directed by Michael Longhurst
"Aren’t you turning thirty any day now? I will die before I turn thirty in a cubicle."
New York. A city that runs on ambition – and coffee.
In the offices of a notorious Manhattan magazine, a group of ruthless editorial assistants vie for their bosses’ jobs and a book deal before they’re thirty. But trapped between Starbucks runs, jaded gossip and endless cubicle walls, best-selling memoir fodder is thin on the ground - that is until inspiration arrives with a bang…
Branden Jacobs-Jenkins spins a razor-sharp comic drama about ambition, office warfare and hierarchies, where the only thing that matters is moving up the ladder and selling out to the highest bidder.
Gloria was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for Drama in 2016. Jacobs-Jenkins’ other plays include An Octoroon, which won the Obie Award for Best New American Play in 2014.
Michael Longhurst’s directing credits include Amadeus (National Theatre), Bad Jews (Theatre Royal Bath/West End) and Constellations (Royal Court/West End/Broadway).

Made me think

It's hard to review Gloria without a spoiler, but here goes. I didn't see it coming and was on the edge of my seat. The entire second act planted seats in my mind, making me think about different perspectives, and who has the right to a story. Amazing acting and amazing set.

This was a spirited lively performance with good acting in a play which has kept its actuality to some extent.
