Jordan Tannahill's critically acclaimed play Late Company will transfer to Trafalgar Studios in August following its sold-out European premiere at Finborough Theatre.

The piece, which sees a middle-class couple invite their son's bully and his parents over for a dinner party, is directed by Michael Yale and will feature the cast from the show's original run; Todd Boyce, David Leopold, Alex Lowe, Lucy Robinson and Lisa Stevenson.

In her four-star review for WhatsOnStage, Holly Williams said the piece was "a dinner-party from hell, but a show that serves up plenty of food for thought."

Talking about the show's transfer, Tannahill said: "I wrote Late Company in the wake of an incident in my hometown of Ottawa, Canada that touched me deeply as a gay youth in my early twenties.

"It was a piece I intended to share with my group of friends; a means of venting anger and seeking some kind of reckoning. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine it would make its way to West End. It is an honour to share this production with London audiences."

Late Company runs at Trafalgar Studios 2 from 24 August to 16 September, with previews from 21 August.
