GLORIA

$23.99

Gloria is on the brink of making her triumphant return to the stage. A celebrated actor – a star, a celebrity – she’s played every iconic role in the canon of theatrical greats: Nina, Hedda, Hamlet, Clytemnestra. She’s burnt into our eyes, our heart, our imaginations.

Playing the real-life survivor of a sadistic crime, Gloria must immerse herself in the horror of her character’s reality. As Gloria falls further into the abyss, the unravelling of her mind is reflected by the breakdown of order around her.

Through Gloria, we see a portrait of Australia afraid to acknowledge the widening gaps in our society. A beautifully complex and original work, Gloria is at once deeply Australian yet global in its perspective.

Benedict Andrews always dares to take us to the edge of humanity, enthralling audiences with some of the most astonishing and thought-provoking theatre of our time.
