Goodman Theatre presents The Vineyard Theatre's acclaimed world premiere production Gloria
. A workplace nightmare paves the way for “sharp-toothed…whip-smart satire” (The New York Times
) in Obie Award winner Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ dark comedy.
Style. Status. Success. A group of twentysomething editorial assistants are pursuing it all at one of New York’s most esteemed cultural magazines. When a seemingly normal day at the office turns out to be anything but, these cubicle captives and aspiring journalists recognize an opportunity to become the next Big Thing. But whose account is most valid, and to what lengths will each go to own the story? In this shrewd new comedy, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins skewers the cutthroat culture of modern media.
This production is part of Goodman Theatre's 2016/2017 Season
featuring a line-up of nine works that embody the values, ambitions and
quality synonymous with Goodman Theatre in honor of Robert Falls' 30th
anniversary as artistic director.
