Welcome to a dinner party from hell. In an attempt to find closure after a family tragedy, Debora and Michael invite their son’s bully and his family over for dinner. As the night progresses, pain, loss and rage all come to a head, and there’s enough blame for everybody to have a share. At turns both beautiful and brutal, Late Company is a hotbed of visceral tension as questions are raised that no one is prepared to answer.

 

By Jordan Tannahill, “the hottest name in Canadian theatre” (The Montreal Gazette)

 

Directed by Evren Odcikin, named one of “6 Theatre Workers You Should Know” by American Theatre Magazine
