Pastiche were thrilled to stage a production of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s legendary and ground breaking musical, Company.

Robert’s friends gather at his apartment in order to throw him a surprise 35th birthday party. Over the course of the evening, Robert reminisces and imagines scenes from his life with his group of friends and girlfriends as he tries to understand his relationship with commitment and attempts to understand the pros and cons of marriage from his diverse and frequently hilarious friends.

Robert and his friends challenge his perceptions of relationships and marriage and offer advice (welcome or not) to help him make sense of his own persistent bachelorhood.

Robert finds the guidance conflicting as he marks his birthday by trying to solve this life changing question – would companionship or marriage be right for him?

Featuring songs such as ‘The Ladies Who Lunch’, ‘Barcelona’, ‘You Could Drive A Person Crazy’ and Sondheim’s iconic ‘Being Alive’ the show wowed audiences across the week.

The production raised a wonderful £1069 for Crohn’s and Colitis UK.
