PROUD


The image shows a large red heart with the word ‘Proud’ in blue capital letters in front of it. The ‘o’ is in white and forms the circular part of the male symbol, the white arrow pointing up to the right of the heart.

David has always been different. He really wishes he wasn’t. Despite the acceptance and unconditional love of his parents, his prayers are answered when he discovers the existence of ‘Reality Trek’, a conversion camp for gay men run by ex-gay Donald and his lord-abiding wife, Bernice. With faith on their side, they guide David and his camp campmates through the programme, but when the illegally-handsome Rory arrives late, David faces the ultimate test on the path to the straight and narrow.

 

MTFestUK is a yearly festival that promotes the best in new musical theatre. The 2 week long festival allows 8 new and emerging pieces of musical theatre to be presented in a workshop setting in front of a live audience. The presentations therefore are by no means complete and actors will use scripts, limited props etc. This is a deliberate choice to allow the writing team the opportunity to work on the material before projects move into full production.
