Local theatre company Pangdemonium is diving into its 2019 season with a serious start. The latest stage production, Late Company, is an award-winning play by Canadian playwright Jordan Tannahill. It explores the intrusive nature of social media on the lives of youths and their families, highlighting the fragility of family relationships and teenage suicide.
Set around a dinner table, couple Debora and Michael apprehensively awaits the arrival of their guests – Tamara, Bill and their teenage son Curtis who also happens to be the bully held responsible for the suicide of their son a year earlier. In their attempt to resolve, forgive and attain proper closure, they must first get through a night full of blame, shame and retribution. As painful accusations are served and shocking secrets are spilled, they recollect and imagine the different perspectives and roles they embodied during the time of the tragedy.
