The Last Word Festival: I Knew You

The highly anticipated second play from Birmingham-born writer and performer, Steven Camden aka Polarbear.

Angela is edging closer to retirement. Then it will just be her, her cat and ready meals for one. Her son Nathan is struggling with being a stay-at-home dad. It’s not as if he’s had a role model for it. The closest he’s got to his dad in twenty years was a Google search.

 

When Angela has a chance encounter with ‘her Patrick’, she is torn about whether or not to introduce him to the son he walked out on and the grandson he’s never met. But Patrick has some news that may force her to decide.

 

I Knew You is the highly anticipated second play from Birmingham-born writer and performer, Steven Camden aka Polarbear. Lorna Laidlaw, Brenton Hamilton and Roderick Smith feature in this powerful look at family dynamics which asks if we can ever really escape from our past.
