A rare example of a contemporary play that keeps us constantly guessing where it's headed, Gloria is a work not to be easily forgotten.” Hollywood Reporter
With a sharp eye for the dark underbelly of human behavior, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ new play Gloria shrewdly depicts the declining, dog-eat-dog industry of publishing in New York City. As an unnamed magazine struggles with the world’s encroaching descent into the digital age, the human relationships within simultaneously implode. Ani, Kendra, and Dean are the sparring, sharp-tongued assistant editors, constantly competing and complaining, vying over power and a better position. Governed by ferocious wit and corrosive dialogue, these characters spend most of the first act sniping at one another and finding ways to ignore their industry’s impending doom
until, true to Jacobs-Jenkins fashion, the action is derailed by a shocking turn.
Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ plays include An Octoroon, Neighbors, Appropriate, and War. Gloria was named a finalist for the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. He is a playwright-in-residence at Signature Theatre. He received the 2014 Obie Award for Best New American Play for both An Octoroon and Appropriate, the 2015 Steinberg Playwrights Award, and the Windham-Campbell Literature Prize in 2016.
A Pulitzer Prize-nominated satire on power and desperation from the award-winning playwright of An Octoroon
