Late Company at Trafalgar Studios
Trafalgar Studios, Whitehall, London, SW1A 2DY
Trafalgar Studios proudly present the West End premiere of Late Company.
Lauded as a contemporary and compelling drama, Late Company is a tantalising hotbed of visceral tension and dark humour that sparks passionate debate.
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 will run from 21 August 2017 until 16 September 2017 at Trafalgar Studios.
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.
The cast features Todd Boyce (Michael), David Leopold (Curtis), Alex Lowe (Bill), Lucy Robinson (Debora) and Lisa Stevenson (Tamara).
Playwright: Jordan Tannahill. Directed by Michael Yale, with set and costumes by Zahra Mansouri, lighting by Nic Farman and sound by Chris Prosho.
