In the offices of a notorious Manhattan magazine, ruthless editorial assistants vie for their bosses’ jobs and a book deal before they’re thirty. But bestselling memoir fodder is thin on the ground, and climbing the career ladder is hard when you’re trapped between Starbucks runs, jaded gossip and endless encircling cubicle walls…
Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’s Gloria is a razor-sharp comic drama about ambition, office warfare and hierarchies, where the only thing that matters is selling out to the highest bidder.

Breathing Corpses

Amy’s found another body in a hotel bedroom
There’s a funny smell coming from one of Jim’s storage units.
And Kate’s losing it after spending all day with the police.
There’s no going back after what they’ve seen.

A double-bill with a 15 minute interval in between the two plays.

These productions contain very strong language and adult themes.
There are scenes of a distressing nature including depictions of gun violence, blood, verbal and physical bullying, domestic violence, and violence against women, and references to suicide, mental illness (depression / PTSD), and offstage cruelty to animals.
