i know all the secrets in my world is a play about what happens when speaking is impossible… a story that breaks your heart and pieces it together, putting plasters touched with tiny kisses over the cracks. i know… is a duet between a father and son in their familial home after the bricks come crashing down around them following the loss of their wife and mother. A journey of sound and movement, it moves through their grief and meditates on fantasy, gender roles, disconnection, absence and the permanence of love. i know… is a multi-love story about men, women, fathers and sons.

tiata fahodzi is the UK’s leading African theatre company and this year we embarked – with fresh leadership and a fresh vision – on an exciting new phase in our mission to reflect the changing African diaspora in contemporary Britain. Over the next three years, you’ll have opportunities to see our work in different contexts and at different stages of development. After festival season we’ll be taking over Watford Palace Theatre on 7 november with tiata delights: our day festival of workshops and performances and in the spring we’ll be touring i know… nationwide. Our commitment to sharing work as early as possible means you’ll get to see the work being born in rehearsal rooms as well as on beautiful stages across Britain. You’ll get to know us – and each other – better through our new digital activity and be part of a national conversation about what it means to live in Britain, here and now.
