On the night of his 35th birthday, Robert struggles to think of a wish to make as he blows out his birthday candles. The lone bachelor, surrounded by “those good and crazy people” -- his married friends -- Robert is uncertain whether he should simply be happy with his lot, or whether he should wish for his own romantic partner. Over a series of dinner parties, first dates, and thoughtful conversations, Robert attempts to understand the pros and cons of marriage from his diverse and frequently hilarious friends, and begins to make sense of his own persistent bachelorhood. Company, Stephen Sondheim’s groundbreaking modern musical, is a mature, intelligent, and wildly funny view of relationships, vulnerability, and “Being Alive”
This is a highly regarded piece of modern Musical Theatre and a show which leaves you laughing, and crying in equal measure. It was written in 1970 when the world was full of “flower power”, “free love” and yet a sense of change. A lot of the humour is quintessentially American, but having had our share of American sitcoms on our screen these past 40 odd years , I’m sure that our audiences will embrace it and laugh along with us.
