“ein kraftvolles Drama – oder besser eine Tragikomödie, die sich von der Leichtigkeit und dem Humor einer Komödie bis hin zu höchster dramatischer und tragischer Intensität  bewegt

Ganz Hamburg

“„The Pride“ erzählt von Sexsucht und verdrängten Gefühlen. Die Sprache ist sehr direkt, das Premierenpublikum war begeistert.”

Hamburger Abendblatt

“differenziert und voller Einfühlungsvermögen”

“ein kraftvolles Theaterstück, das leicht von Humor zu dramatischer Intensität übergeht”



The award-winning playwright Alexi Kaye Campbell tackles the importance of sexuality in a heteronormative society. Alternating between the 1950s and the 2000s, three characters are faced with challenges concerning their sexual identities and the path of their relationships.

Campbell’s play premiered in 2008 and hasn’t lost one bit of importance since. Thought-provoking and touching–this engaging show will leave no one unaffected.

(Content warning: sexual violence, strong language)
