Have you booked your tickets yet for the West End transfer of Late Company yet? The European premiere of fast-rising Canadian playwright Jordan Tannahill’s was a sell-out in May at London’s Finborough Theatre, where many Mates saw and raved about it. It now has a strictly limited season at Trafalgar Studios 2 from 21 August to 16 September 2017. Have a peek at pics and show trailer before and get booking!
Sparking passionate debate, Late Company explores restorative justice, cyber bullying, and the ever-changing complexities of parenthood in the 21st century.
A successful middle-class couple’s lives are irrevocably changed after their teenage son is mercilessly bullied for being gay. In an attempt to ‘move on’, they invite his chief tormentor, and his parents, to a dinner party. Far from finding the peace they seek, the dinner strips bare their good intentions to reveal layers of parental, sexual and political hypocrisy.
Written with sensitivity and humour, Late Company is a tantalising hotbed of visceral tension.
The production is directed by Michael Yale, with set and costumes by Zahra Mansouri, lighting by Nic Farman and sound by Chris Prosho. The full and original cast for Late Company will be reprising their roles in the production including Todd Boyce (Michael), David Leopold (Curtis), Alex Lowe (Bill), Lucy Robinson (Debora) and Lisa Stevenson (Tamara).
