A new stage production to hit Launceston will give audiences an insight into the media and the role they play.
Three River Theatre, in conjunction with IO Performance, will present Gloria for their first major production of the year.
The premise follows editorial assistant Dean as he stumbles into a fancy Manhattan magazine hungover from a party at the home of Gloria - who is known as the "office freak".

All is well between the room of coworkers until tragedy strikes.
Director Georgie Todman said Gloria would "pack a punch".
"It's fast-paced, a lot of overlapping, there is course language, very contemporary language, not afraid to push boundaries," she said.
"It does deal with tragedy and celebrity, and trying to get your 15 minutes of fame."
The script, written by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, but lost to Hamilton.
Gloria will be performed at Newstead College from May 5-8.
