Weekend Events: Gloria, Monarchs, four-legged friends, and more

8Friday — Gloria

Good Company Theatre continues its 2019 season with the cutthroat workplace drama Gloria by Obie Award-winning playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins.

It’s a regular workday in the offices of a legacy magazine in New York City. The intern is already there as a group of editorial assistants gather to take jabs at each other’s, well, everything. As they jockey for status (like at Q, bemoan the state of print media (like at Q), and do very little actual work (Q set the standard, LOL), they fail to notice something is wrong with one of their colleagues. A biting, darkly comedic play about just how far some people will go to fulfill their desperate ambitions.

— Save Them All

Want to save them all … dogs and cats I mean? You better be saying yes. Today, expect to have a lot of fun, and to meet dozens of adorable, adoptable cats and dogs. Each participating rescue group and shelter (part of Best Animals’ NKUT Coalition) at the event has its own adoption application, interview process and adoption fee structure. Adoption fees help cover costs such as spay/neuter, vaccinations, and other medical needs. Please note that all participating shelters and our participating rescue groups offer same-day adoptions.

Potential adopters should come prepared with a valid form of identification and payment. If you’re a renter, it’s a good idea to have a letter from your landlord stating that you are allowed to have a pet. We welcome well behaved and socialized dogs on fixed leashes and under adult control. Meet-and-greet-areas will be staffed by volunteers and specialists who can help with introductions..
The Gateway, 400 W. 100 South, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Free – until you adopt a pet
