SYNOPSIS

“We’re coddling our children to death…” – Bill from Late Company

One year after a gay teen’s suicide, two families sit down to dinner. Pleasant mealtime chatter quickly turns into a fierce interrogation as each person at the table confesses their real or imagined part in the tragedy. As blame shifts, layers of parental, sexual, and political hypocrisy are revealed. Scathingly funny and heartbreakingly real, award winning Jordan Tannahill’s Late Company asks, “How well can a parent ever really know their child?”

“…excruciatingly good theatre: it feels like open heart surgery.” – Jo Ledingham, Vancouver Courier
