Set in the office of a small political pressure group for open government, Now You Know is a satirical comedy about the aftermath of a police cover-up. Mr Hassam has beaten himself to death, according to the Home Office. When a mysterious envelope arrives at the office with information revealing the guilt of the police, Terry Little wants to blow the scandal wide open and leak the document to the press. If he can find time, that is, between living with Jacqui at weekends, conducting an illicit liaison with Hilary in the evenings, and keeping the rest of the staff from finding out.
Now You Know, Michael Frayn’s adaptation of his earlier novel of the same name, was first produced at the Hampstead Theatre in 1995.
