The powerful debut play from Alexi Kaye Campbell, winner of an Olivier Award, the Critics’ Circle Award for Most Promising Playwright, and the John Whiting Award for Best New Play.
Two explosive love stories in alternating eras explore betrayal, forgiveness, and fate. The Pride examines changing attitudes to sexuality over a period of fifty years, looking at intimacy, identity, and the courage it takes to be who you really are. Some things may change, but the complexities of the human heart remain eternal.
Contains scenes with strong sexual content. Age guidance: 16+
“This is a searching, moving, thoroughly grown-up play, and a remarkable debut from a writer from whom I am impatient to hear more.”
—Daily Telegraph (UK)
