Dinner party from hell serves up full gamut of human emotions
Canadian playwright Jordan Tannahill brings his searing family drama to the West End this summer, following its hugely successful European premiere at the Finborough Theatre earlier this year. Tackling themes such as cyberbulling, homophobia, straight privilege and hypocrisy, this modern-day lounge drama will have you on the edge of your seats. Vaunted as the "future of Canadian theatre" by the country's Now Magazine, Tannahill's LGBT-focused shows are set to draw huge crowds, just as he drew on his own experiences as a gay youth in his native Ottawa.
The story is centrerd around the lives of an affluent middle-class couple, who want for nothing. However, their cosy outlook on life is turned on its head when they discover that their teenage son is being cruelly bullied for being gay. esperate to put the horrific events behind them, they decide to throw a dinner party for his bully and his parents, in an attempt to bury the hatchet. However as the wine flows and the evening draws on, the parents' own beliefs, private lives and hypocrisies come bursting to the surface.
