Canadian playwright Jordan Tannahill’s Late Company will receive its West End debut later this year.
Following a critically acclaimed and sold-out run Finborough Theatre in April, Late Company will play a limited season from 21 August at Trafalgar Studios.
Tannahill’s powerful new drama, which was written following an incident in his hometown of Ottawa, explores restorative justice, cyber bullying, and the ever-changing complexities of parenthood in the 21st century.
In support of the production, CEO of CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably), Simon Gunning said, “Late Company is a powerful play that centres around the highly difficult themes of bullying, suicide, sexuality, and family dynamics. CALM is proud to support a show that starts the conversation of stigma surrounding mental health, as well as the dark side of social media and high-school hierarchy. This confrontational play is beautifully cast, acted, and directed; and will certainly help to spread the word about the devastation of suicide.”
Reprising their roles from the Finborough production, the cast will feature Todd Boyce, David Leopold, Alex Lowe, Lucy Robinson and Lisa Stevenson. The production is directed by Michael Yale with design by Zahra Mansouri.
Late Company will run from 21 August 2017 until 16 September 2017 at Trafalgar Studios.
