I’ve just been to see I KNEW YOU whilst waiting for my budding thespian to come out of rehearsals-and it was-is, amazing.
I laughed, I cried and I wanted to box a ‘dad’.
The intimacy of the set, the simplicity of a script saturated with angst and coupled with brilliant direction and a thoroughly enjoyable cast made for an almost surreal experience…
I cannot begin to vocalise or put onto paper the experience (should probably read more) it was like sitting in on a convo with a friend or in my case witnessing someone spill your as yet unformed fears and frustrations about your present and future (it will not be our portion amen)
I will say however, to fully appreciate this gem, you would really have to see it yourself. My only gripe is that I wanted more, time went by too quickly and if you know me I can never get enough of a good thing lol.
I KNEW YOU showing at Birmingham Repertory Theatre until 7 October.
