"A human being is the best plot there is." - John Galsworthy

Gloria McAleer Carreño was born in Glasgow, Scotland, into a family of Irish, Scottish and Viking ancestry. The passion for story-telling started right there!

Gloria has written several short stories but has concentrated on writing for the stage since 1995. To date her plays have been performed in four countries.

Gloria is also artistic director of theatre company Compagnie Mosaïque which she founded in 2014


'Une saison avant la tragédie de Macbeth' has been selected by le Bureau des Lecteurs de La Comédie-Française.
