‘Aren’t you turning thirty any day now? I will die before I turn thirty in a cubicle.’
Hampstead Theatre presents the UK premiere of Branden Jacobs Jenkins’ Gloria, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2016, directed by Michael Longhurst. Colin Morgan and Ellie Kendrick will make their Hampstead Theatre debuts in this razor-sharp comic drama which focuses on ambition, office warfare and hierarchies, where the only thing that matters is moving up the ladder and selling out to the highest bidder.
New York. A city that runs on ambition – and coffee.
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 full cast of Gloria is Kae Alexander, Sian Clifford, Bayo Gbadamosi, Ellie Kendrick, Colin Morgan and Bo Poraj.
GLORIA plays at Hampstead Theatre 15 June – 22 July 2017
