Alexi Kaye Campbell's play, The Pride, is the recipient of the Whiting Award, a national playwriting prize in the U.K., according to a report in Variety.

The play -- which examines changing attitudes toward sexuality and concerns a complex love triangle -- jumps from 1958 to the present. It premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in November, and MCC will present the New York premiere of The Pride beginning in January at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, in a production starring Hugh Dancy, Andrea Riseborough, Ben Whishaw, and a fourth actor not yet announced. Joe Mantello will direct.

Special commendations were also awarded to Simon Stephens for Pornography and Steve Waters for The Contingency Plan.
