Gloria

GLORIA
November 17 – December 2, 2018
by Branden Jacob-Jenkins, directed by Lavina Jadhwani

In GLORIA, a Pulitzer finalist, sincerity meets cynicism meets hilarity as millennials mock the Xers and boomers in a field – print media – that itself is soon to be obsolete.

An adrenaline rush of a show, GLORIA is a shocking, hilarious and spectacularly honest play set among the hyperambitious cubicle dwellers of a once-great magazine. Like journalism, it asks “What is crisis but an opportunity?” and “Who has the right to tell whose story and for how much money?”

30-something Branden Jacobs-Jenkins is the recipient of a MacArthur “Genius” Award. His plays were finalists for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2016 and 2018 and others won Obie Awards for Best New American Play in 2014. Gloria represents the third play by Branden that Mixed Blood has produced, preceded by Neighbors and An Octoroon.

See all three or any combo you like for $35

Gloria is part of Mixed Blood’s PRESCIENT HARBINGERS trilogy: three plays glued together by an African American male prism, through contrast, and via Second Amendment violations.

You can see all three for $35, or choose which you’d like to see for the same price.
