Gloria at Gables Stage
This 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama Finalist takes place 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. This sharp-witted play brilliantly questions the dark side of artistic ambition, modern workplace trauma and the striking commonality of exploitation as a commercial enterprise in popular culture.
