Late Company

Late Company

The critically acclaimed brand-new play transfers to the West End. Lauded as a contemporary and compelling drama, Late Company is a tantalising hotbed of visceral tension and dark humour that sparks passionate debate.

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.

Video: Find out more about Jordan Tannahill’s play Late Company
Tuesday, August 29, 2017

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.
