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.
Design for Jamie Lloyd's season is by Soutra Gilmour, winner of the 2012 Evening Standard award for Best Design.
