22 February - 10 March
Pangdemonium begins their 2019 Season with Late Company – an award-winning play written by Canadian playwright Jordan Tannahill. The production examines the fragility of family relationships, teenage suicide and the intrusive nature of social media in the current climate of increased connectivity and deeper disconnects. It stars Edward Choy, Janice Koh, Karen Tan, Adrian Pang and Xander Pang.
Set around a dinner table, Debora and Michael apprehensively await the arrival of their guests – Tamara, Bill and their teenage son Curtis, the bully they hold responsible for the suicide of their own son a year earlier. As everyone takes a turn in the hot seat for their real or imagined role in the tragedy, painful accusations are served, and shocking secrets are spilled. Provocative, cathartic and nerve-racking, the script subtly approaches the relationships between adults, parent and child, and teenagers with their peers. Late Company is directed by Tracie Pang.
