Mates co-founder Terri Paddock will talk to the stars and director of the European premiere of Jordan Tannahill’s LATE COMPANY, transferring from the Finborough Theatre to the West End’s Trafalgar Studios, on Wednesday 23 August 2017. Got any questions? Book tickets to join her here.

The critically acclaimed brand-new play LATE COMPANY transfers to the West End’s Trafalgar Studios this month. 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.

Author Jordan Tannahill said:

“I wrote LATE COMPANY in the wake of an incident in my hometown of Ottawa, Canada that touched me deeply as a gay youth in my early twenties. It was a piece I intended to share with my group of friends; a means of venting anger and seeking some kind of reckoning. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine it would make its way to West End. It is an honour to share this production with London audiences.”

 

The Finborough cast, directed by Michael Yale, reprise their performances in the West End: Todd Boyce (Michael), David Leopold (Curtis), Alex Lowe (Bill), Lucy Robinson (Debora) and Lisa Stevenson (Tamara).

For the LATE COMPANY post-show Q&A on Wednesday 23 August 2017, I’ll be joined by members of the company to discuss the play and the issues it raises.
