A star, a celebrity - she's played every iconic role in the canon of theatrical greats: Nina, Hedda, Hamlet, Clytemnestra. She's burnt into peoples eyes, hearts, 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, the audience will see a portrait of Australia afraid to acknowledge the widening gaps in society. A beautifully complex and original work, Gloria is at once deeply Australian yet global in its perspective. Benedict Andrews always dares to take audiences to the edge of humanity, enthralling them with some of the most astonishing and thought-provoking theatre of the times. A role like Gloria demands an exceptional actor - that actor is Marta Dusseldorp. Griffin's own Lee Lewis directs this exhilarating journey.
