This European premiere production of Jordan Tannahill’s play is now playing at the Finborough Theatre. Here is what critics have been saying about it: 

The Stage: “an exquisitely weighted, socially engaged drama.”

The Times: “Dinner party from hell serves up full gamut of human emotions.”

Broadway World: “Tannahill’s work draws attention to the dangers of bullying, and his tale is an affecting portrait of the aftermath of teenage suicide.”

London Theatre1: “a timely and timeless meditation on a parent’s struggle to comprehend the monstrous and unknown in their child.”

Theatre Guide London: “Yale also deserves credit for guiding his excellent cast to the level of sensitive playing that allows the audience to discover the play’s psychological insights without having them overly telegraphed or spoon-fed.”

Carn’s Theatre Passion: ” the combination of excellent writing, acting, the intimacy of the setting and theatre itself, I lost great chunks of time, completely involved in the story.”

Rewrite This Story: Late Company is more relevant now than ever and the entire company manages to bring the issues forward in a stunning way.”

Late Company continues to play at the Finborough Theatre until the 20th May.
