Late Company - 2017 - West End

£39

Sparking passionate debate, Late Company explores restorative justice, cyber bullying, and the ever-changing complexities of parenthood in the 21st century.

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.

Written with the right spirit and presenting a very tongue-in-cheek script with plenty of funny one-liners and biting characters, the play doesn't rise up to the occasion.

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. I had the immense pleasure to chat with Levitt about her career and d² productions upcoming remount of the award winning play, LATE COMPANY, which opens December 10, 2019 at The Segal Centre Studio.
