The Pride – GREEN CARNATION PRODUCTIONS

‘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.’

The powerful debut play from Alexi Kaye Campbell (Apologia, The Faith Machine, Bracken Moor).

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.

‘Marvellous, sad and blisteringly funny. 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.

Green Carnation Company’s production of The Pride has been supported using public funding from Arts Council England.

There will be a Post-Show Discussion on Friday evening discussing themes and issues within the production with a panel of relevant academics, historians and members of the company.
