    Mary McDonnell (Dances with Wolves, Battlestar Galatica) stars as the feminist icon Gloria Steinem in this production of "Gloria: A Life." (September 6-October 6, 2019) Written by Emily Mann, artistic director of the McCarter Theatre, the play gives a sense of both Gloria the person and of the feminist movement circa 1960s to today. Not covered in the story is the audience discussion ending each performance, reinforcing Gloria Steinem's belief in the power of the talking circle. As Mary McDonnell points out, Gloria Steinem "is a speaker, she speaks to people all the time, she creates talking circles. So you get the Gloria experience while an ensemble of amazing women are telling the story of all these years of feminism!"
