The Pride

By Alexi Kaye Campbell

Two stories shifting from 1958 to the present and back again. In the first, Oliver and Phillip fall for each other but are forced to be strangers to both desire and to themselves. In the other, the rainbow-stickered present, anonymous sex and empty style collide with the human heart.

Alexi Kaye Campbell’s Olivier Award-winning The Pride is a remarkable reflection on our times, our past and society’s journey.

Presented in association with Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival 2016
