Have you caught the European premiere of Jordan Tannahill’s Late Company yet? After transferring following its sell-out spring season at the Finborough Theatre, Michael Yale’s production has won another slew of five- and four-star reviews in the West End. Its limited season at Trafalgar Studios 2 must finish on 16 September 2017. A selection of some of our favourite review quotes is gathered below…
What does it mean to be a bully these days? How can you really tell if those closest to you are suffering from mental illness?
This is a dinner that, much like Titus Andronicus’ endgame, is a meal that not one person around the table wishes to attend.
It often puzzles me why sharp little stage gems like this don’t get pounced on by TV – notably the BBC – instead of commissioners wasting our eyesight on gloopy dramas custom-built to challenge nobody. Here it is, a neat 75 minutes, bang-on topical and sharply written by Jordan Tannahill, then only 23.
Why has the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) got involved with the play? Why did the director choose not to relocate the play to the UK? How have the actors visualised the absent but ever-present Joel and their characters’ relationships with him?
The European premiere of Late Company, now transferring to the West End’s Trafalgar Studios, has attracted a lot of Mates’ attention. Here, director Michael Yale explains what first attracted him to the play.
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?
For anyone who remembers their teenage years as being particularly painful because of being teased or worse bullied, Late Company is certainly a play that hits all of the emotions with regards the lasting impact of bullying, mental illness and teenage suicide.
Set around the dinner table of the bereaved parents, their guests for the evening are Bill and Tamara Dermot together with their son Curtis, a peer of Joel’s at school and the ringleader of the bullies who had taunted him to his death.
