Jonathan Spector’s This Much I Know to make European premiere at Hampstead Theatre

The European premiere of This Much I Know will take place at Hampstead Theatre in December.

Jonathan Spector’s multi award-winning play will run at Hampstead Downstairs from 13 December – 27 January.

An explosive theatrical interrogation of agency and culpability This Much I Know will be directed by Chelsea Walker and will star Oscar Adams, Esh Alladi and Natalie Klamar.

A tenured professor of psychology, Lukesh enjoys a life as organised and logical as his mind. But then his wife vanishes, sending only a text message by way of explanation and leaving him to re-evaluate their relationship.

He discovers she has embarked on an epic odyssey, crossing and recrossing Russia and delving deep into Soviet history on a quest to unravel a family mystery of which he was unaware – one in which Josef Stalin himself may be involved.

The production will have design by Blythe Brett with lighting design by Bethany Gupwell, sound design by Holly Khan, video design by Duncan McLean, movement by Michela Meazza, dialect by Gurkiran Kaur, magic consultancy by Scott Penrose and associate video design by Stanley-Orwin Fraser.
