By ALEXI KAYE CAMPBELL
Directed by JAMIE LLOYD

Groundbreaking director JAMIE LLOYD leads this critically acclaimed production of ALEXI KAYE CAMPBELL'S landmark play with an exceptional cast including MATHEW HORNE (Gavin and Stacey, Bad Education, Charley's Aunt ), HARRY HADDEN-PATON (Posh, She Stoops to Conquer), AL WEAVER (Inadmissible Evidence, Southcliffe) and NAOMI SHELDON (The Hour, RSC's Merry Wives of Windsor). THE PRIDE follows the extraordinary success of MACBETH starring James McAvoy and Pinter's THE HOTHOUSE starring Simon Russell Beale and John Simm, as the third instalment in JAMIE LLOYD PRODUCTIONS; double Olivier Award nominated TRAFALGAR TRANSFORMED season.

What is the point of this stupid, painful life if not to be honest? If not to stand up for what you are in the core of your being?

Philip, Oliver and Sylvia exist in a complex love triangle which spans over half a century, living and loving simultaneously in 1958 and the present against a background of changing attitudes towards homosexuality.

Past and present worlds grind together and melt apart, yet the future and its promise of sexual liberation remains ever elusive, as societal repression gives way to self-deception.

The Pride is Alexi Kaye Campbell's hilarious and heart-felt landmark play about courage, compassion and the fear of loneliness in life’s journey towards self-discovery.
