The Pride Critics' Reviews

"“Alexi Kaye Campbell's play is such a tremendously rich and uplifting new work. Ben Whishaw and Hugh Dancy craft masterfully shaded dual roles, alternating the body language of the two periods quite confidently. No less effective is Andrea Riseborough playing both a woman trapped in a sham marriage and another on the cusp of true love. And Adam James hits delightful comic grace notes.”"

Review by David Cote from Time Out New York

""A thrilling high-wire act. Some of the season's best acting. Simply astonishing.""

Review by Elizabeth Vincentelli from The New York Post

""The wealth of ideas and authenticity of feeling in both the writing and performances continue to resonate after the play's conclusion. Campbell is a talent to watch, and in this sleek, smart production, New York audiences get a memorable first taste of his work.""

Review by David Rooney from Variety

""A heartfelt work, with some thought-provoking observations about cultures of repression and openness.""

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times

""A work of subtlety and sophistication. The Pride grabs you with its considerable intelligence and heart.""
