LA Times Critic’s Choice, STUNNING… sharp-eyed dramatic intelligence… bitingly funny… a potent Echo Theater Company production” — Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

“RECOMMENDED… STAGE RAW TOP TEN… smartly-etched characters, caustic dialogue and a single startling surprise.” — Deborah Klugman,Stage Raw

“RAZOR SHARP, DARKLY COMIC
… [a] biting, courageous contemplation of the ways we have conditioned ourselves to be fame-seekers… [To miss it] would be a regrettable loss ”” — Eric Gordon, People’s World

Bitingly funny and fierce, this play follows an ambitious group of editorial assistants at a notorious Manhattan magazine, each of whom hopes for a starry life of letters and a book deal before they turn thirty. But when an ordinary humdrum workday becomes anything but, the stakes for who will get to tell their own story becomes higher than ever. A trenchant commentary on the way personal tragedy can serve as grist for the ever- ravenous media machine, Gloria makes us laugh at the very things we should be frightened of.

Features disturbing adult content and strong violence; may not be suitable for audiences under the age of 17.
