The Pride is a beautifully written study of the changing attitudes to homosexuality. As the action repeatedly switches from 1958 to the present day we see contrasts between the nervy, tentative formalities of post-War Britain and the hedonism of the present.

In 1958, Philip and Sylvia have all the trappings of a happy marriage but Sylvia senses that Philip is hiding something, even from himself. Sylvia introduces children’s author Oliver to her repressed husband Philip and the meeting quivers with an awkwardness that hints at unspoken desires.

Fast forward to today and Philip and Oliver are in a relationship - or they were until Oliver’s addiction to sex with strangers drove Philip away from him. He discusses this frankly with his confidante, Sylvia; she wants to focus on her own emotional life, but is sucked in by Oliver’s neediness and does her best to support her closest friend.

Tower Theatre Company is thrilled to be producing the Amateur Premiere of this daring and thought-provoking play, described by Stephen Fry as 'faultlessly brilliant.'

"It means a lot to me that 'The Pride' is being performed for the first time by an amateur company in Britain and I wish the Tower Theatre Company production all the very best for the performances." (Alexi Kaye Campbell)

There will be a panel discussion after the matinee on Saturday 14th December with speakers from The Terrence Higgins Trust and other leading organisations in this arena. Matinee ticket holders will be entitled to free entry for this very special event.

Due to the explicit nature of the material, this play is considered suitable for 16+ years only.
