Vinnie awakes in the afterlife with one question: ‘Who killed me?’.

Out Late follows Sebastian as he falls in love with ex-army officer Vinnie, a charming but volatile out-and-proud gay man. Sebastian tries to hide his new relationship whilst his wife Fifi secretly watches them fall in love. Unravelling Vinnie’s murder take us through a twisted story of jealousy, shame and manipulation.

Set in the round with the audience on all four sides of the action, this dark, gritty work blends dance and theatre in the nation’s favourite genre of fiction: crime drama.

Out Late is the second production created by Wayne Parsons in collaboration with writer Ankur Bahl.

It follows their successful inaugural work Vestige (★★★★ The Observer)

Out Late is made in association with Stephen Joseph Theatre, been co-commission by The Place and Swindon Dance and is supported by The Point, Eastleigh. 

We are actively looking for further touring opportunities for Out Late. Please do take a look at our Promoter’s Pack for more details on our Technical Rider.
