Staff Reviews

A Pulitzer Prize finalist, Gloria is just one of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' many excellent dramas. Seamlessly intertwining comedy and tragedy, this play follows half a dozen employees at a large magazine in Manhattan. Brilliantly incorporating commentary on journalistic values, social norms, and the modern workplace, Gloria also manages to include the single most shocking end to a first act I've ever encountered.

— Jake

"The bitingly funny and fierce Gloria is one of the year's best shows...Gloria is an adrenaline rush of a show, but it also makes you think. Let's just say it hits the bull's-eye." --Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post

"Funny, blistering tragicomedy...along with a delightfully omnipresent, biting wit...You'll be unsettled by Gloria, perhaps even haunted." --Peter Marks, Washington Post

An ambitious group of editorial assistants at a prestigious Manhattan-based literary magazine are each chasing the same dream: a life as successful writers--and to get out of their cubicles before they turn thirty. When a regular day at the office suddenly becomes anything but, the stakes for who will get to tell the career-making story are higher than ever.

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.
