Proud

A dynamic, visceral look at the twists and turns of contemporary male relationships

After his Pentecostal mother dies, Roland is liberated to live openly as a gay man. He relocates from Brixton to Walthamstow, where he unexpectedly falls for Amir, a refugee with a war-torn past. Their magnetic connection is tested, however, by Amir’s PTSD, his inability to identify as gay, and Roland’s strained relationship with his teenage son, Gary.

In an athletic 90 minutes of live theatre, Marlie Haco’s production brings together movement, music, and naturalistic dialogue, to tell an original story of queer love.
