Debora and Michael, grappling with the loss of their son, Joel, make an unconventional decision in an attempt to find closure. Their path towards healing involves a tense dinner gathering with surprising guests. As the evening unfolds, questions of forgiveness and revenge come to the forefront, blurring the lines between acceptance, accountability, and retaliation.

Written with sensitivity and humour by the Award-winning author and playwright, Jordan Tannahill, Late Company, explores the complexities of human relationships and the challenges of finding peace balanced with the need for retribution.

Kwaku Okyere who starred in GLA’s 2019 presentation of The Seat Next To The King returns to the Region to make his solo-Directorial debut with this production. He recently received the Montreal English Theatre Award as Associate Director, Redbone Coonhound and co-directed the acclaimed production, Fairview in Vancouver and is completing his time as part of the distinguished Langham Directors Workshop at the Stratford Festival where he was Assistant Director on Richard II.

The cast includes Ryan Hollyman (Mirvish, National Arts Centre, Tarragon Theatre), Tanisha Taitt (Obsidian Theatre, Soulpepper, and current Artistic Director, Cahoots Theatre), Dieter Lische-Parkes (Yes Theatre/STC, CTV, Crave), and Green Light Arts Co-Founders, Carin Lowerison and Matt White.

“Tannahill’s script makes his characters abandon their pretenses, pick them up again, and then set them on fire.” — Mooney on Theatre

“This is theatre in its purest form: a cathartic cleansing … a palpable mix of hostility and pity on all sides … Late Company weighs heavily on your mind in the days following the performance.” — The Independent (UK)

“Late Company … is excruciatingly good theatre: it feels like open heart surgery.” —Vancouver Courier


This play deals with discussions of suicide, queerness, bullying, and features strained family relationships. Recommended for Ages 13+ years.
