Book This Much I Know tickets at Hampstead Theatre.
This Much I Know, Jonathan Spector’s new play is at once a love story and a kaleidoscopic primer in psychology, history, and the use and abuse of power. Directed by Chelsea Walker (Cougar Orange Tree, A Streetcar Named Desire ETT), This Much I Know follows one man’s attempt to unravel a mystery with his wife Natalya at the centre.
An explosive theatrical interrogation of agency and culpability, This Much I Know runs from 13 December 2023 until 27 January 2024 at Hampstead Theatre, London.
What's the story of This Much I Know?
“I’ll be gone for a while. Possibly forever. It’s nothing you did.”
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.
