Images have been released offering a first look at Colin Morgan and the cast of Gloria, which opens at the Hampstead Theatre later this month.
Colin will appear alongside Ellie Kendrick in Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ new play about a New York magazine where the writers are constantly looking for ways to make their way up the hierarchy at the publication.
Michael Longhurst directs the cast which also includes Kae Alexander, Sian Clifford, Bayo Gbadamosi and Bo Poraj.
The production is designed by Lizzie Clachan with lighting by Oliver Fenwick and sound from Ben and Max Ringham.
Gloria runs at Hampstead Theatre from 21 June to 22 July, with previews from 15 June.

‘ In the film, there is actually very little dialogue. Yet you manage to tell us so much about Jake’s interior thoughts and feelings. Do you have a method to get this across?
COLIN: That was the power of the script for me. The lost loneliness of Jake sort of gave me the impression that he had gone beyond words, beyond talking, and beyond trying to articulate what no-one can understand anyway. He’s also not allowing words to affect him, quite literally cutting off communication with his phone.
A lot of what I feel sometimes is an instinct and a kind of inhabiting of the swirl of thoughts that could potentially be going on within a character. Making a sort of sense of it. For me to walk the line of trying to meet the character halfway, I suppose. I find it hard to articulate myself, but it’s making it as true and as real for myself as possible. Whatever self-deception I need to adopt to do that – I will do whatever it takes to get there. ‘

Colin Morgan reads an abridged version of the original opening text from H. G. Wells 1897 story ‘The War of the Worlds’ as part of our faithful full-cast audio dramatisation.
Colin Morgan will star with Ellie Kendrick, Sian Clifford, Bayo Gbadamosi and Kae Alexander in Branden Jacobs-Jenkin’s blistering drama Gloria, which is being directed by Michael Longhurst at Hampstead Theatre from June 15.
Jacobs-Jenkins has a keen eye for human behaviour. And Gloria, which is set in the airless office of a New York-based magazine, is a closely observed shocker about what can go wrong in a hothouse environment.
