GLORIA by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins and directed by Dolores E. Mendoza at the Tempe Center for the Arts Studio Theatre.
September 29 – October 14, 2023

 

A group of twenty-something 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 aspiring journalists recognize an opportunity to seize a career-defining moment. A scathing critique of our fame-obsessed culture and the cutthroat world of journalism, GLORIA will run you through a rollercoaster of emotions. With sharp wit and complex characters, Jacobs-Jenkins’ writing is both timely and timeless, offering a searing commentary on the human condition.

“An adrenaline rush of a show! One of the year’s best.” – The New York Times.  Please be aware the show contains an act of extreme violence, adult language, and adult situations.
