Late Company

Late Company The critically acclaimed brand-new play transfers to the West End. Lauded as a contemporary and compelling drama, Late Company is a tantalising hotbed of visceral tension and dark humour that sparks passionate debate. 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.
