About The Pride
The Pride Overview
By Alexi Kaye Campbell
Directed by Jamie Lloyd
Hayley Atwell (Captain America, Life of Crime, The Faith Machine, A View from the Bridge) stars in the Olivier Award-winning The Pride directed by Jamie Lloyd, following on from the critically-acclaimed productions of Macbeth starring James McAvoy and The Hothouse starring Simon Russell Beale and John Simm, in a thrilling season of work for Trafalgar Transformed. Also starring Harry Hadden-Paton (Posh, She Stoops to Conquer, Flare Path), Al Weaver (Inadmissible Evidence, Coram Boy, Hamlet) with Mathew Horne (Gavin and Stacey, Bad Education, Charley's Aunt).
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.
