Swine Palace begins the season with Pulitzer Prize finalist, Gloria by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins. Taking place in modern-day Manhattan, it starts on a normal work day for a group of aspiring writers who are growing tired of the monotony of their desk jobs. Then in a shocking moment everything changes. The resulting response is both disturbing and uncomfortably believable in today’s world. Make sure to see this divisive and enthralling play.

"…dramatic plausibility never wavers. We follow where the playwright leads, never sure where the story will end up but grateful to be in the company of such a sharp-eyed dramatic intelligence. The play is also bitingly funny.” -- The Los Angelese Times

"...a shocking, hilarious and spectacularly honest play…" -- The Chicago tribune
