The Hampstead Theatre in north London have announced full casting for the UK premiere of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ comedy Gloria which runs at their main house from 15 June to 22 July 2017.

Colin Morgan and Ellie Kendrick will star in the production alongside Kae Alexander, Sian Clifford, Bayo Gbadamosi and Bo Poraj. Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ “razor-sharp comic drama about ambition, office warfare and hierarchies” originally opened Off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre in May 2015 and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2016.

New York. A city that runs on ambition – and coffee.

In the offices of a notorious Manhattan magazine, a group of ruthless editorial assistants vie for their bosses’ jobs and a book deal before they’re thirty. But trapped between Starbucks runs, jaded gossip and endless cubicle walls, best-selling memoir fodder is thin on the ground – that is until inspiration arrives with a bang…

Branden Jacobs-Jenkins spins a razor-sharp comic drama about ambition, office warfare and hierarchies, where the only thing that matters is moving up the ladder and selling out to the highest bidder.

Gloria was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for Drama in 2016. Jacobs-Jenkins’ other plays include An Octoroon, which won the Obie Award for Best New American Play in 2014.

Michael Longhurst’s directing credits include Amadeus (National Theatre), Bad Jews (Theatre Royal Bath/West End) and Constellations (Royal Court/West End/Broadway).
