The Pride at Hope Mill Theatre

The Pride at Hope Mill Theatre

Green Carnation Company presents The Pride by Alexi Kaye Campbell

‘It was the first time, when we were together, when we were embracing that I felt that I had a pride. A pride for the person I was.’ Oliver, The Pride.

Don’t miss this stunning new production of the powerful debut play from Alexi Kaye Campbell (Apologia, The Faith Machine, Bracken Moor), coming to Hope Mill Theatre this autumn.

‘Marvellous, sad and blisteringly funny.’ The Guardian on The Pride.

The 1958 Oliver is in love with Philip, but Philip is married to Sylvia. The 2008 Philip is in love with Oliver, but Oliver is addicted to sex with strangers. Sylvia loves them both.

Alternating between 1958 and 2008, The Pride examines changing attitudes to sexuality, looking at intimacy, identity and the courage it takes to be who you really are. It celebrates the ideals of gay pride and challenges ideas of shame and the worth we put on ourselves.

The Pride has previously been performed in London starring Hayley Atwell and Matt Horne, and New York starring Ben Whishaw, Hugh Dancy and Andrea Riseborough.

‘A brave and rewarding drama that speaks to us all.’ The Guardian on The Pride.

‘A remarkable debut from a daring dramatist.’ Telegraph on The Pride.

An amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
