The Vineyard Theatre’s original cast benefit reading of “Gloria,” written by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins and directed by Evan Cabnet, will begin streaming on January 19 at 7pm and will be available through January 24.

This trenchant and powerful play that 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 30. But when an ordinary humdrum workday becomes anything but, the stakes for who will get to tell their own story become higher than ever.

In addition to being a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, the original production received notable nominations from the Lortel Awards, Drama League Awards, Drama Desk Awards and Outer Critics Circle Awards.

The reading will feature original cast members Kyle Beltran, Catherine Combs, Michael Crane, Jennifer Kim, Jeanine Serralles and Ryan Spahn.

Proceeds from this reading, which cost $25, will support the artists and programs in the nonprofit theatre's 2020-2021 season, with a portion of the proceeds supporting The Dramatists Guild Foundation. For more information, visit
