Diana Halikova.
Relocated with her husband to Asia as an expat’s wife.
The promise of a better life.
But what has it got her?
No friends, no job, an absent husband.
In the dark room of her mind.

Desiring to leave the shadow of her husband, Diana must make a choice. What would that be?

—Family. Identity. Struggle.
Lonliness.

“… a passionate and thought-provoking piece of theatre…”
The Online Citizen

The Pride

February 19-23 at 7.15pm
By Alexi Campbell

Could a man hide his true nature because of society?

In 1958, Philip is a well-heeled estate agent married to Sylvia, a children’s writer. However, when Sylvia invites her illustrator, Oliver, over for dinner there is an immediate attraction between the two men. Philip is both drawn to and repelled by Oliver’s advances, aware that his whole identity may be at stake should his true feelings be known.

In 2008, the names are the same but Philip and Oliver are this time in a relationship, which has been damaged by Oliver’s addiction to anonymous sex. Sylvia is the friend to whom they turn for comfort.

A play about seismic changes in attitudes to sexuality that has taken place in Britain over the past 60 years reminds us that, despite the sexual sea-change since the 1950s, prejudice is still with us.

''Marvellous, sad and blisteringly funny. A brave and rewarding drama that speaks to us all.''
Guardian

With:
Miguel Urmeneta
Phillip Smith
Namrata Bindra
Charles Slater

Directed by Marek Steenkamp
