As part of the Finborough Theatre’s celebrations of Canada’s 150th birthday, Canadian playwright Jordan Tannahill, “the hottest name in Canadian theatre”, will debut his play, Late Company, at the Finborough Theatre, for a strictly limited season from 25 April – 20 May 2017, with press nights on 27 April/28 April.
One year after a terrible tragedy; 2 sets of parents, one dead son, one living son. Who is to blame?
A suburban dinner party for closure after 17 year-old Joel commits suicide. The guests; his heartbroken mother and father, his so-called tormentor Curtis, and his parents.
Far from finding the peace they seek, the dinner strips bare their good intentions to reveal layers of parental, sexual, and political hypocrisy.
Written with sensitivity and humour, Late Company explores restorative justice, cyber bullying, and the ever-changing complexities of parenthood in the 21st century.
The full cast for Late Company are: Todd Boyce (Michael), David Leopold (Curtis), Alex Lowe (Bill), Lucy Robinson (Debora) and Lisa Stevenson (Tamara).
Jordan Tannahill (writer) is a Canadian playwright and filmmaker and has been described as “the future of Canadian theatre” by NOW Magazine. His work has been presented in theatres, festivals, and galleries across Canada and internationally.
Jordan’s plays have been honoured with various prizes including the 2014 Governor Generals Award for Drama for his book Age of Minority: Three Solo Plays, the 2014 John Hirsch Prize for directing, and Dora Awards for ‘Outstanding New Play’ for rihannaboi95 in 2013 and Concord Floral in 2015. Concord Floral also received the 2015 Carol Bolt Award and was shortlisted for the 2016 Governor General’s Award for Drama. In 2016 Botticelli in the Fire & Sunday in Sodom won the Toronto Theatre Critics Award for ‘Best New Play’ and it’s production at Canadian Stage received the Dora Award for ‘Outstanding Production’.
Jordan is currently working on new projects with the National Theatre (UK), the National Film Board of Canada, and the Stratford Festival.
