The squabbling editorial assistants at one of New York's most prestigious magazines are all chasing the same dream: a starry life of letters and a book deal before they turn 30. When an ordinary day at the office suddenly becomes a living nightmare, two survivors transform the experience into career-making stories. Which one of them will get to own the truth?
In this 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist, MacArthur "Genius" Branden Jacobs-Jenkins skewers the cutthroat, opportunistic culture of modern media. Gloria will mark Woolly's third production of Jacobs-Jenkins's work, after An Octoroon (2016; remounted in 2017) and Appropriate (2013).
Advisory: Woolly Mammoth Theatre's production of Gloria includes sudden loud gunshots. For additional context about the production, see the content warning here (note: includes spoilers).
