Trafalgar TransformedJamie Lloyd’s third production for Trafalgar Transformed is the Olivier Award winning play The Pride, written by Alexi Kaye Campbell. The Pride follows the critically acclaimed The Hothouse, starring Simon Russell Beale and John Simm, which continues at the Trafalgar Studios until 3 August 2013 and Macbeth with James McAvoy.

Directed by Jamie Lloyd  with design by Soutra Gilmour, The Pride runs from 8 August until 9 November 2013.

The production features an outstanding collection of young, British acting talent. Starring Hayley Atwell  as Sylvia, Harry Hadden-Paton  as Philip, Al Weaver  as Oliver and Mathew Horne as The Man/Peter/The Doctor.

Only 85 people a night got the chance to see The Pride during a very short run when the play premiered Upstairs at the Royal Court in 2008 –  a bigger, more diverse London audience will now get the chance to see the play in this brand-new production.

Philip, Oliver and Sylvia exist in a complex love triangle, which spans over half a century, living and loving simultaneously in 1958 and the present against a background of changing attitudes towards homosexuality. Past and present worlds grind together and melt apart, yet the future and its promise of sexual liberation remains ever elusive, as societal repression gives way to self-deception.
