ABOUT:
Bitingly funny and fierce, this play follows an ambitious group of editorial assistants at a notorious Manhattan magazine, each of whom hopes for a starry life of letters and a book deal before they turn thirty. But when an ordinary humdrum workday becomes anything but, the stakes for who will get to tell their own story becomes higher than ever. A trenchant commentary on the way personal tragedy can serve as grist for the ever-ravenous media machine, Gloria makes us laugh at the very things we should be frightened of. Then again… in today’s world, what is crisis but an opportunity?

PARENTAL GUIDANCE IS ADVISED.

PRESS:
«As soon as you settle into a rhythm, the ground shifts and at one point practically dissolves into a sinkhole.
Such unpredictability can be chaotic in the hands of a less assured dramatist than Jacobs-Jenkins. But the micro behavior in the professional worlds he’s exposing is always so well observed that dramatic plausibility never wavers. We follow where the playwright leads, never sure where the story will end up but grateful to be in the company of such a sharp-eyed dramatic intelligence.»
