Why See Gloria?
Not just one devil in the magazine world
Following its 2017 Chicago staging, the exciting new comedy drama by Branden Jacob-Jenkins appears on the UK stage for the first time this summer, at the Hampstead Theatre. Helmed by Michael Longhurst, the play first premiered off-Broadway's Vineyard Theatre in 2015, becoming a finalist for the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Michael Longhurst's previous projects include the much publicised If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet, which marked Hollywood actor Jake Gyllenhaal's stage debut in 2012. Merlin and The Living and the Dead star Colin Morgan and Game of Thrones' Ellie Kendrick will lead alongside Kae Alexander, Sian Clifford, Bayo Gbadamosi and Bo Poraj.
A group of hyper-competitive and desperate editorial assistants are stuck in journalistic doldrums, enviously watching their superiors gain recognition for the stories that they themselves helped to break. In between smiling sweetly at their competitors and twisting the knife behind their backs, a breaking story one morning sees the young go-getters go to the mattresses against each other, in order to break the story and secure a permanent role at the unnamed magazine as the next Big Thing. However, who is most worthy, and who is willing to do whatever it takes? It's time to place your bets and take over as the bitchiness amps up to a factor of 12! Miranda Priestly has nothing on these go-getters!
