Daryl Roth Theatre
101 East 15th Street at Union Square East New York, NY 10003

GLORIA: A LIFE is a play based on Gloria Steinem and her life and work. The play weaves together personal and history-changing moments of the past fifty years, from consciousness among a few women, to the majority tipping point of national and global consciousness that we are now witnessing. Starting with Gloria's early adventures as a rare female reporter, the revelations of the play include stories of the people who inspired her and led her to inspire others.

Act One focuses on her personal life and activism, and Act Two is a Talking Circle in which the audience will be invited to carry the themes of the play into a conversation of their own. This exciting and unique production offers a new form of communicating through theatre.
