Gloria at the Hampstead Theatre

Hampstead Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

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.

Michael Longhurst’s directing credits include Amadeus (National Theatre), Bad Jews (Theatre Royal Bath/West End) and Constellations (Royal Court/West End/Broadway).

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.
