Alexi Kaye Campbell's The Pride To Embark on U.K. Tour
By Mark Shenton
Jamie Lloyd's production of Alexi Kaye Campbell's The Pride, currently running at the Trafalgar Studios through Nov. 23, is to embark on a three-week U.K. tour to visit Brighton, Manchester and Richmond in the New Year.
It will begin performances at Brighton's Theatre Royal Jan. 14, 2014, for a run through Jan. 18, then play at Manchester's Opera House Jan. 20-24 and Richmond Theatre in south-west London Jan. 27-Feb. 1.
West End cast members Harry Hadden-Paton, Mathew Horne and Al Weaver will reprse their roles, with Naomi Sheldon replacing Hayley Atwell.
In a press statement, Jamie Lloyd, artistic director of Trafalgar Transformed, under whose banner it has been staged, commented, "I have always hoped to tour some work directly from our Trafalgar Transformed season. Given recent political and social issues, The Pride needs to be seen by a wider audience at this point in time. I am thrilled that we are taking the production outside London as a part of our drive to make our work more accessible."
Campbell added, "After the successful run that The Pride has enjoyed in London, it means a lot to me personally that the play will now reach a wider audience beyond the capital. I am thrilled that more people around the U.K. will watch these actors' extraordinary performances in Jamie Lloyd's beautifully judged production."
Jamie Lloyd Productions is a partnership with Jamie Lloyd and Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG).
