Photo Flash: First Look at LATE COMPANY at Trafalgar Studios
Following its critically acclaimed and sold-out European premiere at Finborough Theatre in April/May 2017, Stage Traffic's production of Late Company, by the award-winning playwright Jordan Tannahill, transfers for its West End debut at Trafalgar Studios 2, opening tonight, 24 August, for a run through 16 September 2017. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
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 sensitivity and humour, Late Company explores restorative justice, cyber bullying, and the ever-changing complexities of parenthood in the 21st century.
The production is directed by Michael Yale, with set and costumes by Zahra Mansouri, lighting by Nic Farman and sound by Chris Prosho. The full and original cast for Late Company will be reprising their roles in the production including Todd Boyce (Michael), David Leopold (Curtis), Alex Lowe (Bill), Lucy Robinson (Debora) and Lisa Stevenson (Tamara).
LATE COMPANY, opening tonight 24 August, runs through 16 September at Trafalgar Studios 2, 14 Whitehall, Westminster, SW1A 2DY. Visit www.latecompanywestend.co.uk for more information.
