GLORIA: ★★★★ FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES

GLORIA REVIEW

THE SUNDAY TIMES

'The sharply observed first half of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ pitch-black, Pulitzer-nominated play is set amid the sniping junior editorial staff of a Manhattan magazine (the author once worked on The New Yorker) past its fun, rambunctious heyday.'

'A seismic event ends that first half, then this literally becomes a survivor’s tale, with the ghastly jockeying continuing over who has the authority to tell it.'

'Michael Longhurst’s production skewers our contemporary media culture’s sick, slick appetite for commodifying experience into emptily empathetic personal narratives. The cast are great, and after the success of his An Octoroon, it confirms Jacobs-Jenkins as a star in ascendancy.'
