Hampstead Theatre presents the UK premiere of Branden Jacob-Jenkins’ Gloria.
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.
A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2016, Gloria is directed by Michael Longhurst.
Gloria will run on 15 June 2017 until 22 July 2017 at Hampstead Theatre.
New York. A city that runs on ambition – and coffee.
‘Aren’t you turning thirty any day now? I will die before I turn thirty in a cubicle.’
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…
The cast features Kae Alexander, Sian Clifford, Bayo Gbadamosi, Ellie Kendrick, Colin Morgan and Bo Poraj.
Written by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, directed by Michael Longhurst.
