How well portrayed are queer and marginalised characters in new British playwriting? PROUD seeks to address alternative narratives.

After his Pentecostal mother dies, Roland – black and 40 years old – is liberated to live openly as a gay man. He relocates from Brixton to E17, where he unexpectedly falls for Amir, a 21-year-old refugee with a war-torn past. Their magnetic connection is tested, however, by Amir’s PTSD, his inability to identify as gay and Roland’s strained relationship with his 15-year-old son, Gary. What binds these three characters together is the desire to know and understand one another as they struggle to come to terms with their own identities.

Bren Gosling’s Proud overturns expectations and sheds light on the traumatic impact of racism, homophobia and displacement. This insightful new play will be brought to the stage in a bold and compelling production by director Marlie Haco.

PROUD brings together the talents of Roger Ajogbe (The Internship, AC Studios; Unknown (To You), Kiren Kebaili-Dwyer (Toussaint L’Ouverture, BBC) and Levi Goldmeier, who will be making his professional debut.
