Why Not Theatre and Surface/Underground presents Late Company

  What The Critics Are Saying -

Must-See Performance.” - BlogTO

“Late Company is first-rate theatre, searing but holding out a touch of hope and connection in its last moments.” NNNNN – Jon Kaplan, NOW Magazine

“Late Company strikes at the heart of Tannahill’s work.” Toronto Star, Richard Ouzounian

Excruciatingly good theatre.” -Vancouver Courier

"Late Company is a show full of emotion. Anyone looking to be taken on a journey by a talented cast, and experience a story that is thematically poignant and modern, should get out to see it." - Mooney on Theatre

One year after a tragedy, two families sit down to dinner. Far from finding the closure 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 is both a timely and timeless meditation on a parent’s struggle to comprehend the monstrous and unknown in their child.

Social media has added an unprecedented avenue for bullying and Late Company investigates its tragic impact on the lives of two high school students and their families.  Late Company is a powerful, tour-de-force production that will take you from the edge of your seat and back out into the night pondering your family and the effect of electronic media.
