Following its successful run at the Finborough Theatre, Michael Yale’s acclaimed production will play at the Trafalgar Studios for a limited season from the 21st August.

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.

This new run of the production will see the original cast reprising their roles including Todd Boyce, David Leopold, Alex Lowe, Lucy Robinson and Lisa Stevenson.

Talking about the news of the transfer, playwright Jordan Tannahill said: “I wrote Late Company in the wake of an incident in my hometown of Ottawa, Canada that touched me deeply as a gay youth in my early twenties. It was a piece I intended to share with my group of friends; a means of venting anger and seeking some kind of reckoning. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine it would make its way to West End. It is an honour to share this production with London audiences.” 

The production features set and costumes by Zahra Mansouri, lighting by Nic Farman and sound by Chris Prosho.

Late Company will run at the Trafalgar studios from the 21st August until the 16th September. To book tickets visit ATG Tickets
