Jordan Tannahill’s play Late Company opened at Trafalgar Studios last week, following the show’s European premiere at the Finborough Theatre earlier this week. Before the show opened, we visited the cast and director Michael Yale in rehearsals to find out more about this powerful new play. The story sees a dinner party between the Shaun-Hastings family who have been through a tragic event and accuse the son of the Dermots, their dinner guests, of bullying their son. The one-scene play sees the two families grapple with their anger and emotions over the course of the meal.
Loss conjures some of the darkest of human emotions: grief, anger, spite, guilt... Playwright Jordan Tannahill explores it all in his emotional blast of a play, Late Company.
