The powerful debut play from Alexi Kaye Campbell, winner of an Olivier Award, the Critics' Circle Award for Most Promising Playwright, and the John Whiting Award for Best New Play.

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.

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.

The Pride was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs in November 2008.

This edition of the play was published alongside its revival at the Trafalgar Studios in the West End in 2013.

The play is also available in the volume Alexi Kaye Campbell Plays: One.
