Pulitzer-Prize Finalist Gloria By Branden Jacobs-Jenkins Directed by Evan Cabnet  Featuring Kyle Beltran, Catherine Combs, Michael Crane, Jennifer Kim, Jeanine Serralles, Ryan Spahn  

ALL HAIL ‘GLORIA’! One of the year’s best plays. It’s not just “Game of Thrones” that boasts jaw-dropping shockers — the new play “Gloria” has such a fantastic moment, it’s killing me that I can’t spill the beans. Bitingly funny and fierce.  This is a great ride. - New York Post

From the writer of such acclaimed plays as Everybody, An Octoroon, Appropriate, War and Neighbors, Gloria is Mr. Jacobs-Jenkins' funny, trenchant and powerful play that follows an ambitious group of editorial assistants at a notorious Manhattan magazine, each of whom hopes for a starry life of letters and a book deal before they turn 30. But when an ordinary humdrum workday becomes anything but, the stakes for who will get to tell their own story become higher than ever. MacArthur "Genius" Grant winner and two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist, Mr. Jacobs-Jenkins received The Vineyard's distinguished Paula Vogel Playwriting Award for emerging writers in 2011.
