Gay Drama The Pride at Hope Mill Theatre
Green Carnation Company stage their debut production with Alexi Kaye-Campbell’s gripping time-travelling gay drama about a love that crosses decades. The Pride will be performed at Hope Mill Theatre from the 16-20 October.
On Wednesday 10 October, the company will be hosting an open rehearsal at The Lowry from 3.30-4.30pm in which they will be sharing a preview glimpse of a few scenes from the show and answering questions. Interviews are also available via prior arrangement.
Switching between alternate timelines set in 1958 and 2008, The Pride follows a love triangle between three characters and how differently their lives play out depending on the decade they inhabit. Deeply moving and with a razor sharp-wit, this debut play from Alexi Kaye Campbell examines changing attitudes to sexuality, looking at intimacy, identity and the courage it takes to be who you really are.
Simon Hallman (Warrington) plays Oliver, Gareth George (Stockport) plays Philip, Joanna Leese (Cheetham Hill) plays Sylvia and Alex Thompson (Frodsham) plays multiple roles including a comic rent boy with a taste for dominance, a laddish sports editor and a psychiatrist. It is directed by Dan Jarvis and produced by Dan Ellis.
The Pride is written by Alexi Kaye Campbell and is an amateur licensed production in association with Nick Hern books.
Green Carnation Company are a new theatre company dedicated to producing high quality productions that tackle contemporary issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community.
