London’s Finborough Theatre is to stage the European Premiere of award-winning playwright Jordan Tannahill’s Late Company.
Directed by Michael Yale, the production will star Todd Boyce (The Exorcist, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), David Leopold (Muted), Alex Lowe (Fatal Attraction), Lucy Robinson (Waste) and Lisa Stevenson (War Horse).
Following the anniversary of their son’s suicide, in an attempt to gain closure his parents hold a dinner party. The guests; his heartbroken mother and father, his so-called tormentor Curtis, and his parents.
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 explores restorative justice, cyber bullying, and the ever-changing complexities of parenthood in the 21st century.
Late Company runs from 25 April 2017 until 20 May 2017 at Finborough Theatre.
