New York. A city that runs on ambition - and coffee. In the offices of a notorious Manhattan magazine, ruthless editorial assistants vie for their bosses' jobs and a book deal before they're thirty. But bestselling memoir fodder is thin on the ground, and climbing the career ladder is hard when you're trapped between Starbucks runs, jaded gossip and endless encircling cubicle walls... Branden Jacobs-Jenkins's Gloria is a razor-sharp comic drama about ambition, office warfare and hierarchies, where the only thing that matters is selling out to the highest bidder. The play was a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 2016, and had its UK premiere at Hampstead Theatre, London, in 2017. Branden Jacobs-Jenkins was named Most Promising Playwright at the Critics' Circle Awards in 2018 for his plays Gloria and An Octoroon.… (més)

World Premiere run: Off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre on June 17, 2015
Length: Full Length Play

Gloria came out in a very strong year for plays: "Hamilton" won the Pulitzer; the third finalist for the award was the Tony winner "The Humans" (Gloria was Off Broadway so it was not eligible for the Tony).

In the office of a Manhattan magazine, 3 editorial assistants and an intern, are trying to figure out how to do their jobs and still find a future - none of them plans to be 30 and still an assistant and yet they may end up doing exactly that. Their banter is somewhere between cruel and playful - and they have nothing but contempt for anyone who had been around for a long time and had not progressed and become a someone.

Before this day is over, 2 of the 4 will be dead and the other 2 will need to find a way to live with the reality of what happened.

The second act of the play deals with the aftermath of the tragedy - and how different people take it. One is shattered; the other one is still looking for a way to make a name for herself. It is not hard to figure out who will do what - people do not really change.

It is a satire of an industry which had needed to change and reinvent itself a few times. But as all good satires, it is hard sometimes to see the line between reality and satire, between fact and fiction. It is also a well-written examination of what a person have to be to succeed in that world - and of what someone is ready to give up in order to become famous. The end almost makes you laugh - because it almost feels like starting all over again - a different industry, a different town... and yet...

I really enjoyed this play. ( )
