I Know All The Secrets In My World
by Tiata Fahodzi and Watford Palace Theatre
10th February 2016
A silent, physical play would not normally be my cup of tea, Im
normally a big believer in the power of words to explain feelings and
emotions. After seeing this performance I take that back.
Never have I seen such raw emotions portrayed either with words
or without. Solomon Israel (father) and Samuel Nichols (son) completely
took my breath away.
The play shows us father and son grieving at the loss of their wife and
mother, and struggling to find the words needed to talk to each other
and bridge the gap she once filled.
A once playful relationship turned cautious and unnerved needed no words
to show their loss. It was etched into every movement, every look. I fear
this play will haunt me, it was so brilliantly done.
