Late Company written by Jordan Tannahill is a powerful drama that delves into the shattering aftershocks of bullying, homophobia, mental health, and teen suicide. Inspired by the real-life case of a bullied teen who took his life in Ottawa in 2011, Late Company is a poignantly relevant contemporary story of forgiveness, culpability, and reprisal. Set over the course of one evening, a family, stricken by the loss of their son, Joel, who was severely bullied in high school and online primarily for his sexuality, attempts to build a bridge instead of placing blame.
Presented at The Segal Centre For Performing Arts.

December 04, 2019
Helena Levitt was born and raised in Montreal. She graduated from Dawson College's Professional Theatre Program, where she says she fell in love with her craft. Upon graduation, she moved to Toronto to seek out more opportunities. After two years in Toronto, and missing her family, she returned to Montreal where stepped away from acting and went back to school, obtaining a BFA in Drama and Education. She dabbled in Drama Therapy, which she found fascinating. She knew there was a strong connection between Drama and therapeutic practices, so she continued her studies, obtaining a Bachelor of Social Work from McGill University. She married and raised a family before realizing how much she missed performing. She began taking classes, which feels every actor should continue to do throughout their career. She started auditioning and is now a critically acclaimed, well respected member of the Montreal theatre community.
