About Face Theatre is proud to present the Chicago premiere of THE PRIDE, June 6 – July 13, 2013 at Victory Gardens’ Richard Christiansen Theater. Set in London, Alexi Kaye Campbell’s time-shifting play THE PRIDE is a sharp, witty portrait of urban gay couples and the punishing consequences of liberation.
