Jamie Sives to Return to Stage in Production of "The Pride"

Theatre news today: Actor Jamie Sives will mark a return to the boards as this summer he will be appearing in a production of "The Pride" at THE SHEFFIELD CRUCIBLE STUDIO THEATRE in June. In a limited run, Jamie will be appearing in the role of Philip who, as Jamie told me, is "same part that my best mate JJ (Feild) played so brilliantly at The Royal Court last year." AWESOME NEWS!

Running 23 June - 16 July, TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE HERE AT THIS LINK. Jamie also told me that this play is "being directed by a great actor and director,… and friend Richard Wilson. I'll be working with Daniel Evans with whom I worked on 'The Passion' and 'To The Ends of The Earth. He is also the Artistic Director of The Sheffield Cruclible. Its a great theatre and a great city. I worked there 10 years ago, shoving a burning hot poker up Joe Fiennes' arse every night in Michael Grandage's production of Edward II. It will only be a 3 week run but I'm really looking forward to it."

Again this is wonderful news! Jamie begins rehearsals next month. The Pride is described as follows:

1958. Philip is married to Sylvia, but he’s in
love with Oliver.

2008. A different love story is unfolding with a
strangely familiar trio…

Alexi Kaye Campbell’s astonishing debut play, with its candid and heartbreaking exploration of what happens between men and women, exploded onto the stage in 2008. Passionate, heartfelt and gripping, The Pride is about loyalty, loss and having the courage to stand up for who you really are. (Contains scenes of a sexual nature and strong language)
