“Every so often you meet a play…that brings you to your knees. This is Late Company.”

Sasha Singer Wilson, PRISM MAGAZINE

Written by creative powerhouse Jordan Tannahill, the story is remarkably contemporary. As we reckon with the powerful tragedies of Amanda Todd, Rehtaeh Parsons and Jamie Hubley (whose 2011 suicide was the jumping off point for the play), we are forced to question our complacency regarding the young people in our communities and all that they face. How can we support the next generation? In programming Late Company as their season opener, Touchstone Theatre grants us the opportunity to engage with the transcendental power of storytelling. It’s messy, it’s painful, it’s funny and, slowly, sorrow is spun to healing right before our eyes.READ MORE.


Late Company, deftly directed by Dunn, is excruciatingly good theatre: it feels like open heart surgery. Bravos all ‘round…”

Jo Ledingham, VANCOUVER COURIER

I commend Touchstone for bringing this important play to Vancouver, and have no doubt that Late Company will have life across the country for years to come. I encourage you to book your tickets quickly and if you have a teenager in your life, consider bringing them with you. Late Company is sure to crack open meaningful conversations that are difficult to have. Bring a tissue. You’re going to need it.READ MORE.


“Everyone in the five-person cast is excellent.”

Colin Thomas, GEORGIA STRAIGHT

Gerry Mackay’s Bill is just the right combination of decency and belligerence. Katharine Venour’s Tamara broke my heart in her attentiveness to Curtis. And Daniel Doheny is spot-on as the boy: an adolescent jumble of awkwardness, intelligence, and regret.READ MORE.


“This is a must-see play… You won’t be disappointed.”

Ed Farolan, REVIEW VANCOUVER

Damn good actors–Daniel Doheny, Michael Kopsa, Gerry Mackay, Kerry Sandomirsky and Katharine Venour. And hats off to Katrina Dunn for a fine production. The intimacy of the Cultch Studio gave everyone a sense of intensity because of the closeness of the actors to the audience. Accolades to Set Designer Pam Johnson for a magnificent set and kudos to the other members of the production staff: Costume Design by Amy McDougall, Lighting Design by Adrian Muir, and Sound Design by Scott Zechner. We felt like we were right there feeling the raw emotions oozing out of these actors.READ MORE.
