Overview

Get ready for the play that will have everyone talking: Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ explosive Pulitzer Prize finalist, Gloria.

In the offices of a hip New York magazine, where the banter is more poisonous than the pens, a group of twentysomething editorial assistants scrap it out for their bosses’ jobs. And, a book deal before they’re thirty. In a culture powered by status and Starbucks, a regular work day suddenly turns into anything but and these aspiring journalists are presented with a career-defining shot at the best-seller list. In this razor-sharp dark comedy, MacArthur “Genius” grant winner Jacobs-Jenkins skewers ambition, office warfare and the cutthroat world of modern media.

From the company behind Seymour smash hits, The Flick and The Rolling Stone, comes the Sydney premiere of a play that has set New York and London abuzz. Jacobs-Jenkins’ other plays include An Octoroon, which won the Obie Award for Best New American Play in 2014.
