I Know Things

Set in a post-apocalyptic world, I Know Things deals with the emotional backlash of human genetic engineering, as a dysfunctional family struggles to advance in a highly controlled new-world order. Although this is the first formal collaboration between HART Theatre and Masque Alfresco, it is playwright Don Teeters' and Masque Alfresco's third Fertile Ground Premiere, and promises to be his most thought-provoking work to date. Be careful what you ask for! What are you willing to give up to advance or even to survive? How much can human impulses be manipulated before they snap? What has genetic fiddling done to us? - All probing questions asked by the four main characters. The response of the controlling Examiner: "Consciousness is everything. If humanity had more of it, we wouldn't be here."

I Know Things stars Colin Trevor as Daniel, the emotionally confused scientist; Kathryn Brown as Cristal, his brilliant, clear-headed daughter; Ravyn Jazper-Hawke as Cly, his enigmatic replicant wife; and Rian Turner as Derrick, the fugitive Islander.
