Written by Alexi Kaye Campbell

Wednesday 18th September to Saturday 21st September

Directed by Stuart Reilly

If the world you lived in told you your love was wrong; would you fight for it? What if the world you lived in let you have everything you wanted; what good is love?

Three people. Two different decades. One love.

The Pride, by Alexi Kaye Campbell, is the Olivier Award-winning play that looks to examine the changing attitudes our country has to sexuality, love and those that are challenged by them. Join the Bench in celebrating their 50th anniversary as we explore what it means to love someone against all expectations.

Please note this play contains adult themes, language that some may find offensive, scenes of a graphic sexual nature and is unsuitable for persons under 15 years of age.
