Looking back at…London Pride

London Pride by Katie McCullough

7-17th May 2013 The Selkirk Upstairs

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Public Reviews

In Shelly’s rundown pub dreams are revived, hope falters and someone’s looking for a fight.

A new arrival sends ripples through Shelly’s humdrum life and riles Joe, a regular determined to defend his territory.

Back in 2013 we staged London Pride as part of a double bill at the Wandsworth Arts Fringe, with Audience with the Ghostfinder. Katie McCullough’s honest take on little England through the eyes of a pub landlord was filled with humour and pathos, all of which was expertly delivered by the cast.  

…a rare chance to see some outstanding new writing…both plays on the double bill are brilliantly written and superbly acted, with ingenious staging.

WAFF Double Bill Reviews so far

I’m thrilled with the reviews we’ve had so far for our double bill of London Pride and Audience with the Ghost Finder.  Rehearsals were brilliant fun and we were really pleased with the work, but you just never know quite how it’s going to feel for an audience.  You can have a looky look here and here to see what Stage to Page and The Public Reviews thought of the show.

Have you seen the production yet?  Let us know your brain thoughts on here, or facebook/twitter!

Tickets are still available for Weds 15th and Thurs 16th May via TicketWeb.
