About The Pride
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
‘What is the point of this stupid, painful life if not to be honest? If not to stand up for what is in the core of one’s being?’
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. Following three complex characters, we see how different their lives could have turned out had they been born 50 years earlier or later, and what can be learnt from their various struggles - even today.
The Pride premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2008, and won an Olivier Award, the Critics’ Circle Award for Most Promising Playwright and the John Whiting Award for Best New Play.
Different Works are delighted to be staging this production to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the play’s premiere, and we’re especially pleased to be performing in conjunction with Edinburgh’s Pride weekend - as both a celebration of progress and poignant history lesson of the struggles many LGBTQ people and their allies have faced over the years.
Contains adult content, strong language, and scenes some audience members may find upsetting.
This is an amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Pride are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
