A one-off script-in-hand performance of Alexi Kaye Campbell’s The Pride celebrating 50 years since the UK’s first Gay Pride Rally, and in the lead up to Pride in London.
Directed by Aran Cherkez, BAFTA and Olivier nominee Omari Douglas (It’s A Sin, Constellations) takes on the role of Oliver. 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 are.
The 1958 Philip is in love with Oliver, but married to Sylvia. The 2008 Oliver is addicted to sex with strangers. Sylvia loves them both.
