"When you wake up in a cold sweat at night and you think someone is watching you, well it's me. I'm watching you. And that cold sweat on your body, those are my tears..." One year after the suicide of their teenage son, Debora and Michael sit down to dinner with their son's bully and his parents. Closure is on the menu, but accusations are the main course as good intentions are gradually stripped away to reveal layers of parental, sexual, and political hypocrisy - at a dinner party where grief is the loudest guest.
Written with sensitivity and humour, Late Company explores restorative justice, cyber bullying, and is both a timely and timeless meditation on a parent's struggle to comprehend the monstrous and unknown in their child.
