About the Play:

Described by Torontoist as a "searing, unforgettable drama," Late Company uncovers layers of parental and political hypocrisy at a suburban dinner party where grief is the loudest guest.

One year after the suicide of their teenage son Joel, Debora and Michael Shaun-Hastings sit down to dinner with their son's bully and his parents. Closure is on the menu, but accusations are the main course as everyone takes a turn in the hot seat for their real or imagined part in the tragedy. Blame shifts over the course of the evening from one person to the next, provoking introspection where there may be none, and raising questions no one is prepared to answer.

Cast: 2 women, 3 men

What people say:

"Tannahill's subtle writing examines divergent approaches to parenthood without condemning anyone, as well as the challenges of childrearing in the 21st century." - Debbie Fein-Goldback, NOW Magazine

"Tannahill's script makes his characters abandon their pretenses, pick them up again, and then set them on fire." - S. Bear Bergman, Mooney on Theatre
