‘Slick and provocative and beautifully acted … rush to see it’

The Age


Editorial assistant Dean stumbles into work, hungover from last night’s mortifying party at Gloria’s house. Surrounded by his ambitious co-workers in their Manhattan magazine office, the only thing that matters is how fast you can climb the journalistic ladder of success and get your name in print. Today is just another ordinary day, until suddenly it’s not and the stakes for who gets the story become higher than ever.

Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ explosive Pulitzer Prize finalist Gloria is a fresh and surprising new satire that takes a scathing look at office politics, our exploitative, media-saturated age and holds up a cracked mirror to American culture. This Australian premiere is directed by Lee Lewis (Hay Fever) featuring a favourite of stage and screen, Lisa McCune (Cabaret) like you’ve never seen her before, with Callan Colley (Three Sisters), Jordan Fraser-Trumble (The Legend of Ben Hall), Jane Harber (Offspring), Aileen Huynh (Cleverman) and Peter Paltos (Minnie & Liraz).


Lisa McCune discusses Branden Jacobs-Jenkins jaw-dropping show.

Sharp, inventive comedy

Genuinely shocking. Manages to speak savagely about our own world.

A disquieting and devilishly enjoyable production

Lee Lewis directs with her usual flair and marshals assured performances from her cast.
